Dance has always been a interest and passion of mine and, from a young age, I began learning and training in a variety of styles, from Jazz, Ballet & Modern dance to Contemporary and Street/Hip Hop.Over the years, my experiences include performing at local theatre groups and taking part in many local and community dance projects as a performer and choreographer. I trained at York St John University where I achieved a BA(Hons) Degree in Dance and Performance Arts.
