Welcome to the Dena Smith School of Dance

Miss Dena has always loved dancing ever since starting at the age of two and a half with the Wendy Sharpe and Sharon Potter School of dance, moving to the Sharon Potter and Dena Smith and most recently becoming the Dena Smith School of Dance. This is a great honor to be able to continue the traditions of the school.

Miss Dena teaches all levels in Corby, Brigstock and Oundle.
