Charly Maynard 

Founder & Director 

After dreaming about owning her own dance school Charly opened the doors to Maynard Academy of Dance in July 2016. Charly has always had a passion for teaching and choreographing the younger generation. Inspiring her students to be the best that they can be is something magical. 


Her aim for her students is to help each of them develop their artistry and unique quality of movement by enriching them with a wealth of knowledge. Charly wants each student to leave the studio feeling positive and empowered, each of them feeling a sense of belonging and that they are apart of creating such a wonderful dance community. 

Charly does not just want to just create and aid beautiful dancers but leave each student with the tools, knowledge and work ethic to be independent and resilient individuals.
