I initially trained as a Classical dancer at the Royal Ballet School, becoming Head Girl in my final year and gaining my teaching diploma in dance which is recognized worldwide. I danced on a UK tour with the company ‘Educating Motion Company’ and for several years I belonged to Pineapple Dance Agency who secured me many dance jobs in adverts, TV appearances and exhibitions/events.
I secured my first teaching job in London, when Central School of Ballet employed me to re-launch their Junior School.(Children age 5-12 years) Over 5 years of hard work I managed to build the school up to over 140 pupils and choreographed an annual show which they performed at the Lilian Baylis Theatre, London.
Central also employed me to work with their Senior pupils (18-21 years) on dance teaching skills and working with children. Alongside this I worked in Nursery schools in Central London teaching baby ballet as well as teaching private dance lessons to many celebrities’ children including Madonnas daughter, Lourdes.
I was also employed at Arts Educational School as their Ballet Mistress- teaching daily ballet classes throughout the school from year 7 pupils up to year 11. I entered many students for major RAD ballet exams and organised and choreographed for the Annual Easter Show.
Many of the students I trained have had successful careers and become dancers in companies and West End Shows. I love to visit the theatre regularly, seeing many of my students perform in shows and musicals.
To date, I manage and teach for my own business... 'Mini Dance Performers'. These classes aim to pass on my passion for dance and well being to the younger generation.
