Janice Blake began her dancing career by taking part in festivals from an early age. At the age of 13 she won a contract to perform in the children’s ballet at Blackpool. From there she went on to appear in many pantomimes and summer seasons working with such entertainment legends as Bob Monkhouse and Harry Secombe.

A summer season in Bexhill on Sea changed the course of her career when she met and married her husband, David. Janice then turned her talents to acting, appearing in rep and T.V. plays. After the birth of her two sons, Janice opened a very successful dance studio in Bexhill, taking part in many festivals over the years. Pupils have gone on to work in the West End, on cruise ships and for the Disney Company. Former pupils have appeared in High School Musical, Joseph, Love Never Dies, Crazy for You, The Wizard of Oz, Book Of Mormon and Cats.

Janice now enjoys and appreciates being a Dance Adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals. BC,M,J,CO,T,S+D,MT,G,N,CD
