    About me

    Born in Nottingham, I started dancing locally at the age of 3. Since then I have performed on many occasions including with New English Contemporary Ballet and Rambert Dance Company. I started training at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in 2010, during this time I performed in works by Kerry Nicholls, Mark Baldwin, and Ross McKim. I joined NDCWales in 2013 and have performed in works by Stephen Shropshire, Angelin Preljocaj, Eleesha Drennan, Stephen Petronio and Christopher Bruce. I am now working as a Freelance Dancer and have recently worked with Phoenix Dance Theatre and Shobana Jeyasingh Dance.
