Hi, I'm OLIVE!

I'm passionate about dance and about people, and what can happen when you nurture things to grow...

I have over 15 years experience working in the arts, with a host of previous producing and dance management roles behind me with internationally renowned dance companies and organisations.

Olive Kane Dance is my newest venture, building on my ever-growing teaching work and rolling it all up into one lovely organisation where I can focus on inspiring the next generation of dance and arts enthusiasts. At the heart of my approach is:

  • Progression - building a strong technical foundation and supporting each child to reach their full potential through managable steps and goals

  • Confidence - enjoyment and nurture at the heart of classes with each child treated as an individual

  • Community - children (and their families) feeling part of something special and make friends for life


It is so important to me to offer classes in Waltham Forest, the borough I was born, brought up and went to school in.

Details about my current classes at Leyton Sports Ground are below.

If you are interested in joining a class fill out this form and I will get back to you with availability.
