Jan & Clive Foster were told their little baby, Alison, would never walk, after she suffered brain bruising at birth in October 1981. 35 years on and Alison spends her time teaching dance to thousands of people at branches of Dancewise Studios across the South.
Thanks to her parents, who spent hours doing physio at home with her, Alison did learn to walk against all the odds. She then learnt to dance, to the amazement of her doctors, before creating Dancewise in 2005 to “change lives through passion and positivity”.
Dancewise has now expanded with branches in Whiteley, Abshot, Fair Oak and at Pixies Day Nursery in Locks Heath as well as in it’s flagship studios in Hythe. Alison says “me and my team are committed to welcoming everyone to the Dancewise Family, and to supporting them in order to make their dancing dreams come true.”
Dancewise offers classes for kids, teens and adults in Authentic Street Dance, Irish, Ballet, Tap, Modern, Acro, Contemporary, Pilates and Singing and also offers a unique boys only training programme.
