My name is Kerryn van der Merwe and I am currently based in Clapham, London!

I am a South African who has been living and working abroad for the past 18 months. I operate as a Private Dance Tutor, Free-lance Dance Teacher and a Fitness Instructor in and around London and through online lessons too!

I am qualified through the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) in Classical Ballet, Modern Theater, Tap Dance and Street Dance. As well as offering Popdance parties, classes and workshops, I offer private exam tutoring and freelance cover for group classes for all syllabi from Primary-Advanced!

I have been dancing since the age of 5 and  studied Theatre and Performing Arts at the Waterfront Theatre School, Cape Town for 4 years. I enjoy exploring many different styles of dance and movement and absolutely love the idea of dance being used as a way to move the body and bring on endorphins! Alongside private exam prep, I currently offer themed dance parties for children, teens and adults!

I have always been connected to dancing and fascinated with the joy that movement and performing can bring!

Along with my dance qualifications I am a Stott Pilates Matwork Instructor, Ten Pilates Reformer and Barre Instructor as well as a Fitness and Flexibility coach. I spend most of my days implementing movement into my everyday life to feed my creativity and keep me sane!

I thoroughly enjoy working with Popdance! The team is filled with an array of great personas who all share a common passion for dance! Beyond that, they are friendly, supportive and extremely organised!
