LittleCwtch was created by Rowan in 2015 to bring fun dance classes to the local area she was brought up in, Brecon. Having become a mum herself she felt that Brecon would gain from having sensory classes for little babies and also fun dance classes learning a variety of dance styles for children aged 4+. LittleCwtch continues to thrive in the community and now runs in a number of locations in Wales and boarding into England. Billy helps teach a number of the Jitterbugs classes and it's so lovely for the children to experience a male dance teacher them. Stephanie continues to work for LittleCwtch from time to time helping with Freeplay/playgroups which run throughout the school holiday period and also any parties/wedding bookings we may get.
Founder, Director and Teacher
From the age of 4, I started ballet and tap classes at Ribbons/Mid Wales Dance Academy in Brecon. I achieved an Intermediate level ballet grade with The Royal Academy of Dance. I completed BA hons Dance Degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University and graduated in 2013. During my time at university, I taught children and adult dance classes with Tiny Toes Ballet and Wonderland Studios. In 2015 I returned to Ribbons dance school as a teacher and teaching assistant for children aged 3-6 years.
I realized that there was little movement, learning development and fun dance classes in the community for babies and children of all ages. This is where LittleCwtch began! I completed a baby sensory and massage course with Tots Play.
I am also a full-time mother to 2 young children and my knowledge and understanding from this has helped form the LittleCwtch approach and lesson plans. I give children aged 6 weeks to 10 years the opportunity to develop movement, sensory, music and social skills whilst having lots of fun!
I also have a DBS check and have recently completed a first aid course and safeguarding children course.

"As a teenager i knew i wanted a career in Childcare, i loved the idea of caring for children and aiding in their development. At 19 i got my dream job as a Nursery Assistant for 0-4 years. Being in the setting for over 9 years i gained all of my qualifications, Level 2 and 3 in Childcare, learning and Development by 2011. After gaining more experience i wanted to aim for management and in 2013 an opportunity arose where i was offered a promotion to be Nursery Supervisor, within this new role i went on to complete Level 5 Leadership for Children's Care, Learning and Development. During my time in the setting i trained in Paediatric First Aid and Child Protection. I am also very interested in Language and Communication so took the opportunity to train in Speech and Language Support for Under Fives. In the last year i have started a family of my own and am absolutely loving it! With my new home life, i now wanted a new challenge in my work life. Working for LittleCwtch gives me the opportunity to continue doing what i love. I am very excited about being part of the team and meeting new people."
