About Me

My background and influence is release based contemporary technique, exploring suspension, flow and connectedness through the body. As well as creating and performing, I have taught a wide range of community groups and freelanced for prestigious organisations, including Trinity Laban (Learning and Participation) and Magpie Dance, for whom I am currently a lead facilitator. I have extensive experience of working with toddlers, children, older adults and people with learning disabilities.

 

Having previously undertaken a humanities degree at Bristol and MA at Durham, I decided to follow my life-long passion for dance, undertaking a foundation apprenticeship with Springs Dance Company and later going on to graduate from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a Postgraduate Diploma in Community Dance (Distinction) in 2015. During this time, I was awarded the Audrey Wethered Scholarship. I also choreographed Dia-sonic, a dance work that was chosen to be performed on the Bonnie Bird Stage, Laban. In 2016, I became a member of TenOverSix Dance Company, performing at Chisenhale Dance Space and then at the Resolution Festival at The Place in 2017.

 

I have recently completed a Specialist Diploma in Choreological Studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with distinction. My specific research interests are in choreological praxis and place-making, the connection between place, space and shape – how dance affects place and, in turn, how our surroundings might affect the way we move- and the use of imagery in connecting to our inner and external expression. I also have a keen interest in literature and the creative written word, which influences my teaching practice.

I have undertaken specific training in Dance for Parkinson’s. I was fortunate to be mentored in this area by Danielle Teale as part of the Trinity Laban Dance and Health Leaning Group.

I am a professional individual member of People Dancing: the foundation for community dance. I am DBS checked and have a certificate in Emergency First Aid at Work from the British Red Cross.
