Dear Visitors,  I would like to make you aware that it has come to my attention that another dancer / teacher has been going around for nine years sharing dishonourable information and complaints based upon hearsay slanderous lies to try to discredit me. I can confirm that this is totally malicious and it may be defamation of character. I am just a small buisness holder trying to earn a living using my given talents / learned skill to hold safe spaces for Women for wellbeing dance & celebratory performance that is only good & positive it does not warrant for a nine year attack regardless. I had given some thought before posting this to my website but have been given no other choice but to share my truth. I have to protect my reputation by sharing what has been happening for so long to warn people about this to avoid people being manipulated or influenced. I honour my students and the space we share when I teach I do everything in my power to ensure that I teach safely and ethically which I hold evidence of. Although I am only human and not perfect I do believe that the work that I do is a healing holistic service that people are attracted to because my energy is honest transparent and gentle and what I offer is unique from class structure to choreography I create it does not mirror that of other teachers and it is something that people like. I really couldn't care less about being the best I am just myself and I really couldn't care less to be anyone's competitor. As a creative dyslexic artist who comes from a family of creatives artists and musicians I have been brought up to believe that competition is not art and that everyone has the right to shine. People choose where they want to go and should be allowed to have freewill without influence or manipulation. Abusive behaviour harrasment & slander is not acceptable and it has no power here. I hold evidence in regards to everything that is written in this statement. I will continue in my work regardless. I am free to do what I want to do when I want to do it and where I want to do it and nobody will stop me. I  hope that I have made myself clear on this subject.  Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Tara Maxwell

Wallasey Village Saturday Class starting 28th May 12pm URC Church Hall 10 week block £60 (£10 deposit to reserve space) 
Individual tasters £8 each or 3 £21 must be booked - There are 10 spaces for block bookings and 4 tasters reserved each week for people who want to try a class or can not commit. If you buy a ten week block you save between £10 - £20. I prefer my classes not to be packed as I like to do my best to ensure that I teach dance safely. It is impossible to correct everyone or ensure everyone is following correct technique if a class is packed out. Ten people is more than enough however I allow space for taster students to get a feel for the class. It is quality technique over quantity at my classes. As a humble teacher I'd rather my students receive the best instruction that they pay for. It may not suit everyone and that's okay. Everyone is free to come and go as they please. 
 Another Hoylake course and Wallasey block will be running in September please contact me to reserve a space.
