My name is Tori Caine
I'm a dance teacher and event co-ordinator from Southampton, Hampshire. I have a passion for teaching a varied range of dance styles to students of all ages and abilities, along with supporting local charities with all aspects of event management.
School of Dancing
Established in 1998, Tori Caine School of Dancing offers classes, examinations and performances to children and adults in Classical Ballet, Tap, Modern Theatre, Jazz, National and Folk Dance.
Classes are held at the spacious traditional setting of St. Peter's Church Hall, Maybush and those attending from further afield can join online.
The Point Eastleigh
Tori has been a member of the teaching faculty at The Point since 2006 and teaches a number of classes in Ballet and Tap. She is extremely proud of the Adult Tap programme and the many large scale stage shows that they have been invited to perform in!
Dance for Parkinson's
Tori has been teaching Dance for Parkinson's since 2016 and has trained with People Dancing Live Well and Dance with Parkinson's and PDSW. She was an Associate Artist with the Luminelle CID Project directed by Danielle Jones and has attended remote training with David Leventhal, Dance for PD Brooklyn, NY.
The Point Eastleigh
Tori co-teaches the very popular Dance for Parkinson's class at The Point with Gabriel Galvez.
Dancers enjoy the fabulous studio and garden stage setting whilst making new friends at class.
Classes can help with fluidity of movement, flexibility, balance and everyday living.

Parkwood Leisure Salisbury
Movement and Dance for Parkinson's is facilitated by Parkinson's UK Salisbury Branch and is co-taught by Tori and Samantha Gillingham.
The class is very social and is combined with a calendar of regular meet ups and events. Dancers feel the benefit of targeted movements to upbeat music by following the Dance Science approach to class.

Steady & Strong Dance
Steady & Strong is a Hampshire County Council initiative providing Strength & Balance classes to over 65s as part of their Falls Prevention Programme. Tori was invited to add the dance and creative element to this scheme and successfully runs classes via Zoom.
Participants feel the benefit of evidence based exercises and how this can improve their health, wellbeing and confidence with everyday living.
Tori is the Dance Expert Contributor to Later Life Training for their joint project with Hampshire County Council for Steady & Strong Dance.

What a pleasure it is to be part of Tori's Steady & Strong Class. Tori is not only an extremely good teacher as she explains and demonstrates the routines ,we then follow to fun Music. She is a very personable person and makes one feel Special.
The Exercises have been and are most beneficial for my stability and helped me especially while out walking my dog as have stopped me from falling!
Also we have been taught how to manage if we do fall to cope and then getting ourselves up. All in all a class most worthwhile to do .

All aspects of staging and floor management, auction co-ordinating, performance booking and guest assistance on the night.
If adrenaline sport is your thing, Tori can help! As a licensed skydiver herself, she has arranged 100s of tandem skydives for likeminded people, who enjoy raising funds for local charities in conjunction with Skydive Netheravon.
