Jane Tiplov ISTD DDI Dance Teacher

Jane's love for dance began at the age of 6 where she attended The Kathy Watkin School of Dance in Waterloo until she was 18. Jane studied Ballet, Tap and Modern dance, and was lucky enough to become the North West Champion several times in all of these genres. 

At the age of 18, Jane decided to take dance to a professional level, and after succesfully gaining a place at one of the top dance schools in the country, attended the Northern Ballet school in Manchester for three years from 2010-2013. During her time there, she gained qualifications in professional dance, aswell as teaching qualifications and with further professional training in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary and Tap, gaining high distinctions in all her examinations. 

Since graduating from NBS, Jane went on to secure her first professional job onboard Cunard's flagship, The Queen Mary 2. "Performing and doing what you love is quite literally living the dream, and an added bonus for me, I met my now Husband, Anton, who is my dance partner." Both Jane and her husband went on to work for Princess cruises from 2014-2018 where they performed some of the most challenging shows at sea, created by the Broadway and West End legend, Stephen Schwartz.
