Gill took over as principal of the school in October 2015 following the death of Mary Pearce, who had been principal for 20 years. Gill started as a student at the school at the age of 3 and went on to attend the Hammond School in Chester to study dance. Unfortunately an injury cut her dancing career short. After a break, Gill returned to Morphew and qualified under the British Ballet Organisation's teacher training scheme and has been teaching at the school since 1999. Her main passion is ballet, especially the senior ballet. Despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in October 2014 Gill continues to teach, manage the school and staff and is looking forward to the challenge of finding new premises for the school in 2016.
Kate is a former Morphew School of Dance pupil and her interest in dance led her to becoming a fully-qualified teacher under the British Ballet Organisation teacher training scheme. Kate has been teaching at the school since 1988 and specialises in modern dance and tap dance. She takes responsibility for the majority of modern/tap choreography in shows.
Diane specialises in teaching both tap and ballet to the younger pupils in the school. Her significant experience as a performer is of great benefit when inspiring nervous beginners, and her knowledge of her students abilities helps her choreograph their show dances effectively. Diane manages the Bratton branch as well as teaching a large number of classes in Trowbridge.
