Private 1to1/groups dance lessons in Street dance styles/Hip-Hop/Contemporary/Jazz/Ballet for all ages from kids to adults at all abilities/levels

Methodology

My aim is to give every person I teach the opportunity for growth strength and self confidence. I am very passionate about sharing and exchanging the knowledge and skills I have gathered through all my experiences, with others who have an interest and are keen to learn. When teaching I like to address the human being first and foremost, then the dancer, and then the career/industry. I create a fun, enjoyable but disciplined space for my students to train, create, and play within, and I will always keep a good energy and vibe throughout.

Background

I am a professional performing artist, choreographer, and dance/fitness teacher. I have 7+ years of experience teaching all ages from kids to adults at all levels/abilities. I specialise in Hip-hop/Street dance styles but also teach contemporary, jazz, musical theatre, and fitness. I trained in musical theatre and dance at The Brit School, Urdang Academy and Bodywork Dance Studio Cambridge. I have also worked professionally both in the UK and internationally as a performer in theatre, film, and tv.
