Fellow, International Examiner and Committee Member for The Imperial Society Of Teachers Of Dancing
Principal of North Liverpool Dance Academy (NLDA) and Teacher Training CollegeCathi started her love of dance as a two year old in Sydney Australia where her family emigrated in 1964 with £20 in their pockets.
On their return to England Cathi continued with her dancing and eventually went on to Professional Teacher Training College to gain her initial qualifications.
After teaching for many years in some of the most prestigious Colleges across the North, Cathi opened her own Dance school in 1993 in the heart of the Community in Bootle. The Teacher Training College was opened in 2000 and produces lots of fine teachers every year. Students travel from across the country to study at NLDA and it is one of the most successful Approved Dance Centres in the country. Cathi is one of the most Qualified Teachers and Examiners in the North and strives to help these young teachers start their careers.
Cathi has taken The Owen McVeigh Foundation on as the chosen Charity for her School and College to support. Fundraising for the Foundation started in November 2017 and to date approximately £6000 has been raised by Cathi producing Dance shows in their aid.
“I am humbled and honoured to be asked to be an Ambassador for the Owen McVeigh Foundation. I am a simple and unknown person to many and I am proud to have been chosen by Mark McVeigh to stand alongside those who work tirelessly for this cause.
This is an amazing Charity who arrange such thoughtful and special events and experiences for the families affected by their children’s illness. I hope to be able to help as much as I can and promote more knowledge of the Foundation through the events I arrange. “
