When she was just a girl, Felicia Good knew what she wanted to do.

“All I ever wanted to do in life was dance,” said the Prestwick, Scotland, native, now married to a retired U.S. servicemember.

Joining a dance academy in her teens, she later left school to perform in London, and worked as a dancer for years before joining the military culture. Relocating to the local area in the 1970s, Good started the Mildenhall School of Ballet, and taught dancers for decades before closing it down several years ago.

Good now teaches “pre-ballet” for girls ages 3-5 at the RAF Feltwell Community Center at 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday, from July to May, where she gives them the very basics in a 45-minute class. Classes cost $5 each.
