Born and raised in Manchester, Rosemary trained as a teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance following her own professional dancing career. She co-founded the school with esteemed local teacher Kathleen Woollard. Kathleen retired in 2005 and Rosemary will always be indebted to her for her guidance and inspiration.
