My training was in classical ballet. I gained a degree at the Royal Academy of Dance and later, an MA in choreography at Middlesex University.
Injury left me unable to perform, but drew me into the field of dance education – a happy twist of fate.
I have worked with a variety of dance companies including English National Ballet, London Contemporary, Birmingham Royal Ballet, The Royal Ballet School, Anjali and Corali, developing, leading and managing dance projects in schools, the community and health care settings.
In each setting I have been – and continue to be – guided by highly experienced and generous dance practitioners.
I live in the North Pennines, an area of outstanding natural beauty known as ‘the last wilderness in England’. This is my base as a freelance dance artist working in healthcare, education, and community settings.
