I have been dancing since the age of 3 years, covering many disciplines including Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz

At the age of 14 I started training at the BRIT Performing Arts and Technology School where I studied GCSE dance, A level dance and a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts.

Upon completion of my studies at the BRITS I auditioned at the North London Dance Studios, training for 5 days per week for 2 years for which I received a graduation diploma. My love for teaching grew immensely whilst at North London and it defined my path - I knew that this was the path for me. A teacher of mine invited me to work with her at her new school, so I did and still do today.

By now I had caught the teaching bug and was enjoying my work. I knew that this was the profession for me. So, I took and passed my dance teaching in ISTD Modern and am currently working towards my Ballet and Tap CDE. I have also gained an IDTA Freestyle Associate.

I provided cover for Jazz classes at Chadsworth in 2004 for the 35th Birthday Show. Almost 5 years later, I am still here and am currently teaching ISTD Tap and Modern and RAD Ballet. I also teach all the KAOS Street Dancing Troupes at the school on a Saturday with my partner in crime Sophie.

Since being at Chadsworth I have entered children for various examinations with excellent results. The Junior Kaos Troupe recently competed in the British Arts Awards and finished second place. We have also performed in several London Theatres and Disneyland Paris.

I love working with all the staff and children at Chadsworth. Is is such a happy and welcoming place.
