Chloe Colman

Principal & Senior Teacher

Chloe trained on the professional Level 6 diploma in Musical Theatre. Throughout her time in training she found a passion for choreographing and teaching all ages and abilities. She finds watching the growth of her students unlike anything else and wanted to create a company to develop her passion into her life. 

 

In 2018 she founded 'CMT Company' which later developed into 'Colman Creative' in July 2020, which enables the company to cover more services including sports massage, fitness and workshops.

Chloe has performed in many shows in various parts of the country including Hairspray, Pirate Adventures and Little Women. She has also performed with Ultrabeat Live in their UK tour in 2019 and 2021 as well as choreographing for these tours. 

She has had a lot of experience in choreographing pieces for dance schools and companies for shows and competitions but is looking forward to working withs students on a regular basis instead of in a workshop setting. 

Chloe is a member of National Teachers Association of Dancing, Acrotrix, Dance School Safeguarding Services & Danscend: Mental wellbeing for dancers. This enables Chloe to train our students safely and to the next level.

Chloe loves working with those who join Colman Creative Academy and is looking forward to the growth of the academy.
