Testimonials

Kayleigh is wonderful, she makes the children feel so comfortable. My daughter loves her dance class and always comes away so happy. Would highly recommend.

Vickie Harrison

Parent

You bring a smile to the middle of the week with your enthusiasm and patience. Whilst at times you can show no mercy in giving us those drills, you also let us have fun and experiment with jumps, twirls and routines. Keep up the good work.

Cathryn Pernstich

Kayleigh has been very welcoming and made my daughter feel included and relaxed straight away. Reasonably priced classes in a convenient location for us and the premises are great.

Founder and Principal

Kayleigh Underhill, ISTD DDE

As the Principal of Desire2Dance, a Dance School I founded five years ago, I focus on providing fun and enjoyable classes, but with an underlying focus on technique utilising my broad range of dance qualifications, which also allows me to guide my students through the optional exam process. 

I am an ISTD qualified teacher in Ballet, Modern and Tap and hold my Zumba® licence as well as my Level 3 Diploma in teaching Mat Pilates. I also have experience in Lyrical, Street, Jazz, Contemporary and Commercial.

I have been dancing within the ISTD syllabus since the age of 5 and have worked my way through all my major exams, whilst performing in numerous productions over the years at various theatres in West Sussex, as well as many professional shows.
