     An Educationalist specialising in Dance Teaching and Confidence Building
  "As a Dance Educationalist, Teacher, Parent and Principal of a Community Arts School, I help others to achieve personal goals and develop their confidence and self-esteem.


Let me introduce myself . . .

My name is Suzanne Mendonca

and I have a passion for helping others reach their goals through education and building self confidence.   As a qualified school teacher and dance lecturer, I believe education, support and sharing knowledge empowers you to achieve goals and make positive change.  From training and supporting dance teachers over the last 11 years (together with my business partner and sister, Dawn) I have helped aspiring dance teachers to obtain IDTA dance teacher status, think like dancepreneurs and with the aid of our teachers resource 'Dance Business Success' set up and grow their own businesses.


As the Founder of DanceMode Dance Schools and current Principal of DanceMode Croydon and StarMode Croydon,  I help children to develop their ability to express themselves and overcome some of the obstacles hindering their confidence by organising and participating in local events and workshops.


  • IDTA Dance Teacher Training                   For information on our courses, dates and venues see

The school will focus on building confidence and self esteem through performance and dance exams.  For more info visit

  • Event Organiser                                              I have had over 12 years experience in planning and organising various events from childrens parties, workshops, examination sessions to community dance competitions.
