some esprit success stories...

laura halford

As a six year old, Laura was identified as having the potential to succeed as a rhythmic gymnast.


Since that time, under the guidance of Esprit's head coach Deb Hows, Laura has become one of Britain’s greatest ever rhythmic gymnasts. Winning the British Championships Senior title 5 times, she also won  Commonwealth Games medals in Glasgow and Australia's Gold Coast!

As a young gymnast, Georgie learnt the key to success was hard work, dedication and practice, practice, practice.


A work ethic she has continued to apply as a graduate of the Arts Educational School, London and now as a well established West End actress.


Georgie has so far appeared in some of the very best Musical Theatre productions, including A Chorus Line, Legally Blonde, Singing in the Rain, Barnum, Showboat and Beautiful, as well as several performances at the Royal Albert Hall in the BBC Proms.


Georgie is living proof, if you start here, you really can go anywhere!

courtney hows

As one of the most successful artistic gymnasts ever trained in Swindon and qualifying for the British Championships, Courtney went on to become an excellent all round sportswoman.


Since graduating from University, she now focuses on her passion for performing. Most recently stunning the crowds in Barnum, with comedian and actor Marcus Brigstocke, where she put her gymnastic skills to great use!


Courtney however retains her love of gymnastics and still teaches the sport, at a club in London, in her spare time.

Starting as an artistic gymnast, before making the switch to the rhythmic discipline, Elise developed a unique understanding of the body and how it works.

Elise's knowledge is now helping her in her career as a sports therapist and runs her own practice from Esprit's facility here at Headlands.
