A little about me...

 

A little bit about me:

I relaunched Razzamataz Wimbledon in Spring 2020. My husband and I have two daughters and a son and our children were always encouraged to attend dancing, singing and drama classes as they grew up; with our son going on to perform professionally with his own b boy crew, collaborating with major artists both in the UK and internationally.

I have worked extensively with children and young adults, running my own business in education and development, and I believe this background is perfect for me to continue the successful running of Razzamataz Wimbledon. It is my ambition to increase the number of students at the school giving as many local children as possible the benefits Razzamataz has to offer.

I recognise the value of the performing arts in encouraging self-esteem, confidence and fitness. The Razzamataz ethos is:  Having fun, making new friends and enjoying being active, leading to happy and healthy children. I am very passionate about Razzamataz and the wonderful experiences provided for students and it is a pleasure to see the children grow, develop and enjoy themselves week on week.

With the support of my amazing industry professional teaching team, I will continue to provide your children with a supportive and nurturing environment in which they are encouraged to pursue their full potential and realise their dreams.

Olivia Chadwick

I started dancing late when I was 15, though prior to this I had done a few years at a local part time performing arts school. I then went onto study Musical Theatre at College earning D*D*D*. After my time at college, I studied locally before moving to London to study at Arts Educational.

I have performed in multiple shows including the professional tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I have loved studying musical theatre and living in London so far and am extremely excited to start working at Razzamataz alongside my training!
