Gina Joyce Barnard
Gina trained in Classical Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz dance from a very young age. Whilst attending Steppin Out Academy of Performance she achieved the highest levels of these genres, alongside studying Irish dance and gaining her teaching qualifications with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (DDI and DDE)
Making her professional performance debut as a senior dancer in the Poole pantomime Peter Pan, Gina has since continued to perform in various cabaret troupes and modelling catwalk shows. Alongside teaching Gina performs regularly, something that she is very passionate about. Gina is thrilled to teach for Stella and the amazing pupils of DFA. Bringing her classical knowledge to the school Gina offers Ballet and Tap classes for children and adults as well as the ‘All That Jazz’ for 3 – 6yrs & ‘Wonders of the West End’, which both include Singing and Dancing!!

Stella is the founder of DFA (Dance for All) which was established in 2004. She is passionate about dance & the arts and believes it enriches people’s lives. Stella believes in creating opportunities for all her students and feels that progression is an important part of their growth & development.
Part of Stella’s ethos is to grow the students confidence & self-belief along with their dance skills, which will give them the tools to succeed in the bigger world.
“Since the start of DFA in 2004 I have seen many
of my students go on to follow their dreams and become successful. DFA has played an important part to the community over the years and has been that stepping stone for many to reach their goals to get them to where they want to be”.
