About Demeric

Aurelia Whitfield AISTD dip LCD dip is the principle of The Demeric School of Dance

The school was founded in Farnham by Mrs Priscilla de Meric in 1961, who ran the happy and busy dance school up to her retirement in 2002 when Emma Wise, a former pupil of the school, and Aurelia Whitfield took over the running of the school and the majority of the teaching. In the summer of 2013, Emma sadly parted from the practice to move away with her family to Devon. Aurelia is now sole principal and continues to run the school.
The Demeric School of Dance has now been established over 57 years providing children from the age of 2 through to Adults healthy bodies and minds from the benefits of dancing. As well as the physical exercise, dancing provides the awareness of posture, co-ordination, agility and flexibility as well as confidence in physical abilities and enhancing social skills.
The school runs classes in the Cecchetti method of Classical Ballet, ISTD Modern and Tap, Street Jazz and also classes in Adult Tap and Ballet. We have recently added New Acro classes.
