' I really wanted to get into Teaching Dance. I discovered the IDTA Freestyle qualification and having done exams with IDTA in the past I was familar with the organisation and its structure. I studied with Dance Train an organisation based in London and I felt that by doing the Freestyle qualification it offered me so much creative freedom.
