ABOUT DAKINI DANCE COMPANY


Founder and choreographer - Beatrice Capel


Beatrice started dancing when she was 9 yrs old at school, and from 18-25yrs she danced in Paris before coming back to England where she was a dancer in a London dance company. After moving to Buckinghamshire she started teaching in various locations in Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire and opened her own street-dance school in Buckingham in 1993. That school ran until 2013 with around 100 pupils a year, from 6-18yrs. Many of these pupils went on to take dance and theatre degrees at universities and some to dance professionally. Beatrice puts this success down to her particular emphasis on making each individual dancer the very best dancer she or he could be.


Since 2005 Beatrice has also been choreographing First Dances for weddings - and has overseen some fanciful Hens dances too!


Beatrice is Enhanced DBS checked.



"Dear Beatrice,


Alison and I really can’t tell you how much your help with our First Dance improved our wedding day experience. Those training sessions were fun and frantic and we were both surprised to discover how much we could learn! Neither of us expected the final result which was fabulous - and our family and friends thought so too.


Thank you Beatrice for doing what you do so well. We will not forget your help.


Best wishes,


Ashley and Alison"
