I have been dancing since the age of five at a local dance school, competing in dance festivals all over England. I went to a theatre college for my A levels and was able to perform three high profile shows per year. Afterwards, I was accepted in to Millennium Performance Arts (based in London) to train in musical theatre on a three years diploma course. Whilst completing my intensive training I taught dance and was also a part time choreographer. I have taught dance at: ‘Act Too Performing Arts’ in Crawley, ‘Applause Youth Theatre’ in Dorking, and at ‘Hurtwood House’ 6th
form college in Holmbury st. Mary. I am also a children’s entertainer for Bella Parties dressing as princesses and making sure all the children have fun! Boogie Pumps is a great new company that allows kids to learn how to dance in a way that can be fun and exciting! I love that I can be part of this and get to see how quickly the kids improve. To see the kids leaving with a big smile on their faces makes it all worth while.
