Cari Wright


Cari began teaching at Marlow School of Dance in 2011, subsequently taking over as Principal in 2014. She started dancing at a young age and it has been her passion ever since. She performed in many shows and festivals throughout her childhood, and began choreographing for theatrical groups as a teenager. She pursued a career in fashion merchandising in her twenties, while working as a dance teacher and choreographer part-time but soon realised that her heart belongs in the dance studio and completed her teaching qualifications with the ISTD, thereafter turning her attention to dance full-time, going onto freelance at several schools throughout Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Surrey. She is delighted to have been running Marlow School of Dance for nearly a decade, navigating a global pandemic and taking the school from strength to strength - maintaining a full timetable on Zoom and ensuring her students had access to dance lessons throughout lockdowns. She maintained the school's 100% pass rate (with the majority of students achieving high Merits and Distinctions straight out of lockdowns). What Cari enjoys most about her job is nurturing every child’s talent and helping them reach their full potential - from the one-a-week student who dances purely for fun to the students who wish to pursue a career in dance - we aim to support every child in their dance journey.

Louise Brant


Louise has been dancing since the age of three, taking exams in ballet, tap, modern and drama, alongside regular stage performances and competitions. In 2016, Louise graduated from Falmouth University in Dance and Performance BA (Hons), where she spent some of her final year studying at a conservatoire in the Spanish city of Valencia. After graduating, Louise decided to pursue her passion for teaching and work towards recognised teaching qualifications with the ISTD at Linda Sweetzer’s TTC. Whilst teaching, she gained her DDI Modern, DDE Ballet and Advanced 2 Ballet. Recently she was thrilled to gain her ISTD Licentiate Ballet exam to enable her to teach at a higher level. Louise has experience teaching ballet to children aged two to eighteen. She particularly enjoys preparing students for exams and hopes she can inspire pupils with her love of ballet, allowing them to explore their own individual dancing journey.

Saffron started ballet lessons in America when she was 18 months old and has loved ballet ever since, taking exams in both ISTD and RAD alongside tap and modern. She is also a seasoned performer, dancing in numerous ballet shows and school productions as Dance Captain. After her A levels, Saffron was offered a place at the Royal Academy of Dance, but she chose to study for a BTEC in Performing Arts to develop her all-around performance skills. Saffron took up her place on the BA in Ballet Education degree course at the Royal Academy of Dance in Battersea in 2021, where she continues to study for her degree alongside her RAD teaching qualifications. Saffron regularly teaches in London, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. Saffron is excited to bring the Royal Academy’s current best-practice teaching methods to Marlow School of Dance.
