Personal Description::

I first began my dance career in the USA where I undertook 15 years of formal dance training in several styles including ballet, modern/contemporary and hip hop. After finishing at a local dance company, I went on to pursue an undergraduate degree in both Dance and Cognitive Science where I was first introduced to blues dancing, swing dancing, and Argentine tango.

In between traveling and dancing, I went on to receive an MSc in Dance Science & Education where I focused on the psychological impacts of injury and peak performance in elite dancers. Following my first Master's, I then completed an MSc in Physiotherapy. I am currently a practicing physiotherapist working with both dancers and members of the general public.

Dance Instruction/Teaching Experience::

Throughout my years at both school and university, I have taught several styles of dance including ballet, contemporary, hip hop, swing, and tango. I have also choreographed several ballet and contemporary pieces as well as musical numbers for Broadway style shows such as 'West Side Story' and 'Pippin'.

Since my first introduction to blues dancing in particular, I have taught workshop weekends intermittently at various events worldwide.

Teaching Approach::

Combining my background in dance performance, psychology, and physiotherapy, I teach in holistic manner which emphasizes injury prevention and individual expression.

To me, dancing is not only passion and a manner of self expression, but also a lifestyle that I hope to share with others.
