Throughout my dancing career I have performed in many theatres such as, Royal Albert Hall, London Plaidium, Her majesty Theatre, O2 Arena, Hull New theatre, RNCM, and many more. I have also starred in the film as an extra, Street dance the Movie, performed with various bands/ singers such as Bud Sugar, etc... and being in many Runway performances, club performances, and many more. I have a huge passion for performing as well as teaching. I have also taught in places such as, 0161 studios, Base studios, Studio 25, rare studios and so on. I am very passionate at what I teach, as I love to see my students grow. No pain, No gain.
I trained at the Northern Ballet School, after graduating I traveled the world as a professional dancer, performing musical theatre. On returning to England, I moved to London and began my dance teaching career within the vocational sector, first at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and then with Tring Park School for the Performing Arts as the Dance Coordinator for the Theatre Arts, Performance Foundation and Drama Courses, and Coordinator of the Holiday Courses. After nine years at Tring I returned home to Yorkshire to raise my family, and I am extremely
pleased to be joining the teaching staff at Nova Arts.
