Education and Outreach Team

Name: Anna
Position: Education Co-ordinator
What I do at the Grove:  I run Youth Theatre classes for 6 – 19 year olds and oversee the running of all our dance classes and workshops that take place throughout the year.  I also produce our Grove Production Project for young people, which takes place in August every year and culminates in four performances on our main stage.  I can also arrange work experience placements in our venue. I LOVE my job!
Interesting fact: I once won a gold medal in a figure skating competition and I can play hammond organ!

Name: Karen

Interesting fact: I run NKB School of Dance with my sister Nicola and we are extremely privileged to have been selected to support the BBC One hit show Strictly Come Dancing on Tour since 2010. Sparkly dresses and fake tan…I love it!
