Welcome to M-Puslive Dance School, I'm Michelle. I trained in ballet from a young age at Miss E Cavers School of Dancing in Kelso. Finding a love for dance I then windened my dance training at Borders Youth Dance Company where I learned contemporary technique from a range of visiting professionals as well as some hip hop dance.


Whilst at university in Edinburgh, I continued to take up more street/hip hop style classes and co-captained the Edinburgh University Vixens cheer dance team attending national competitions as well as performing throughout the city. Alongside my degree I studied for an internationally recognised dance teachers' qualification through a London based company to achieve honours in my IDTA Fresstyle certifcation with the IDTA.

In 2006 M-Pulsive Dance was established (previously known as Michelel Douglas School of Dance) My aim was to offer classes in street and hip hop and to children, teens and adults of all ages and all abilities. Since 2006 the school has grown and grown but I stay true to my mission- inspire people of all ages to get up and dance! I use creatiivity in my lessons and a high energy teaching style to instill confidence in my dancers to perform and belive that my passion for dance is every day helping to inspire a new generation of dancers and stars.
