British born Sandra Burnham has fifty years' experience as a professional dancer, teacher and examiner of classical ballet. After a season as a teenager with the Royal Ballet's 'Ballet for All' program, she grew too tall for corps work and became a member of the world famous Bluebell Girls troupe in Paris for seven years. She also worked as a Parisian high fashion model. Moving to New York, she worked in haut couture modeling and then as a NBC-TV production assistant, whilst continuing her ballet training at the Youskevitch Studio. Marrying and returning to her native England, she opened and ran her own highly succesful ballet school in beautiful North Yorkshire for twenty years, during which time she became an international ballet examiner for London's Royal Academy of Dance. She has taught and examined in Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Shanghai, Hong Kong, the Carribean, Canada and the United States.
