Thorey Mountain, who is English/Icelandic, has recently returned to Portland following an extended stay in the UK where she was Head of Jazz Dance at two of the foremost vocational ballet schools, Elmhurst School for Dance in association with Birmingham Royal Ballet and The Dance School of Scotland, which has close ties with Scottish Ballet. She also taught Matt Mattox Jazz technique at leading performing arts college London Studio Centre.

In recent years she has been thrilled to see three of her students star in the role of Michael on the London stage.
