Bio.

BalletBums Locations Glasgow Ashley Mason

I started dancing at 3 years old and trained in RAD Ballet from the age of 5. I was a Junior associate of Scottish Ballet before successfully auditioning at the age of 11 for the Elmhurst Ballet School and finished my training at the Arts Educational School London. I went on to dance professionally for a few years in Ballet then musical theatre in the UK & abroad. After giving birth to my daughter I opened my own dance school Step Into Dance on the East coast of Scotland before moving to the West Coast of Scotland where I now run my own dance school Turning Pointe Dance Academy in Helensburgh & Glasgow. I am a qualified dance teacher in RAD , BBO, ISTD & IDTA. I teach Ballet, Tap, Jazz, musical theatre and Contemporary/lyrical. I am extremely passionate about Ballet and I am a Silver Swans Licensee with the RAD , I also teach Adult ballet to all ages .

Throughout my years of teaching I have pupils who are and have been associates of Scottish Ballet, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Royal Ballet. Pupils have also gone onto train at professional Ballet/dance schools in the UK including the Royal Ballet School London.

I am so excited to be teaching Balletbums and looking forward to sharing my love of ballet in this fabulous ballet workout.

“BalletBums couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I love how versatile the classes are and the fact that anyone, any shape and any size can participate and realise how great ballet is for the body and the mind.”

“Once you are at the barre that it is all you concentrate on, so all of the every day baggage has to be left at the door. Corrections are given without humiliation! I always feel energised after class and just wish I could start every day with 60mins in Emily’s studio!””
