The Michelle Randles School of Dancing was officially established in January 2004, in Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire.
In August 2008 we took over the Deanne King School of Dancing and we where pleased to welcome all new pupils to the school
The Dance School teaches classes in NATD Ballet and Ballet Pointe work, Tap, Modern, Lyrical, Streetdance, Breakdance, Drama/Singing lessons and Rhythmic Gymnastics. The school is currently teaching 250 pupils from 2 years old to Adults. We pride ourselves on teaching with structured classes involving dance techniques, confidence building, discipline but most of all fun! (especially for our younger pupils)
Our experiences involve NATD examinations annually, we also regularly perform in London's West end at her Majesty Theatre and Saddlers wells. Our greatest achievement o date is successfully audition to perform in Disneyland Paris in August 2014!! We can’t wait! We also encourage our dancers to take part in regular auditions and many of our students take part in Pantomimes at the end of the year at Christmas time. We are also involved with many community performances such as Summer Fayre's, Carnivals, and Garden Parties etc. Our summer school which runs for two weeks during the summer holidays always proves to be very popular! The highlight of the year is our school dance showcase at our local theatres, the Castle Theatre, Wellingborough and The Lighthouse Theatre Kettering

Frenchy - Achille Loic Bibalou-Uro
Born on 28th November 1984, dance has always been part of his lifestyle whilst growing up. Frenchy trained at Clarendon College this was mainly
contemporary dance but also included jazz, ballet and tap-dancing as well as other dance forms. Before going to college I took an interest in
break-dancing and this has been my main concentration for the past 4 years.
I take particular interest in break-dancing because of the artistic forms which can be executed through good practice. Although dancing is my
main interest I am also able to speak fluently in French, German and English; this has therefore given me the benefit of communicating and acting
in more than one language thus giving me an advantage of a variety of stage performances.
Frenchy recently taught his own classes for Derby dance centre, and regular workshops within schools. Having moved to this area and now teaching as part of this school we feel lucky to have him.
