I can readily admit that I have found a passion that will remain a large part of my life; unfortunately I found this passion later in life than many professionals in the industry. I completed a degree in contemporary dance at The University of Leeds which taught me the basics of many classical styles as well as contemporary dance. My main passion is in combining classical/contemporary dance with urban inspired dance- creating a fusion which, in my point of view, is contemporary dance exemplified.

I am also a keen circus performer. I am currently proficient at juggling (3 balls but with many tricks), contact juggling, staff and bar flair.
