The Vital Signz Team
Vital Signz was founded in 2009 by Anna Martin and Carly Allen to bring high level street dance and hip-hop classes to areas outside of Central London. We have a diverse and experienced faculty who have both professional performance and teaching experience. All of our teachers have been through an enhanced DBS check and many have classical dance training.
After training around the world - LA, New York, Barcelona and London, Anna began her teaching career in 2006. She enjoys teaching a variety of new-wave street styles to both adults and under 16's and is also an experienced Level 4 fitness professional working as a Master-Trainer & Choreographer for dance fitness brand Clubbercise.
While Anna was slightly younger and a little bendier she danced with a variety of crews and dance teams including working for a sports performance team performing at large events, football & rugby stadiums over the UK.
Anna is Vital Signz' accounting and web development guru and can mostly be found sweating in the studio or attempting to keep everyone sane.
Carly is an extra-ordinary teacher, choreographer and dancer with a passion for sharing her love of dance. Carly is a strong versatile dancer who started her career in classical and has now fused this with her love for hip hop including working for Channel 4, Smirnoff, Sky, Tresor Paris, Sadlers Wells, Siobhan Davies, Peackock Theatre, Clothes Show Live (just to name a few ) and various schools and universities around the country.
To counterbalance the craziness of life with Vital Signz, Carly also teaches a hot power Vinyasa style of Yoga to calm her mind.
She may be small, but her energy, motivation and her speaking voice is anything but little! Carly teaches a large portion of the Vital Signz timetable and can usually be found with her nose in her choreo book thinking of new ideas and crazy plans for her dancers!
