About me

I am an emerging dance artist who is passionate about tackling large global themes, such as climate change, through dance. I am also interested in dance as a support for mental health and wellbeing. I believe that dance: encourages creativity, curiosity and ambition, allowing a person’s individuality to flourish. I am most proficient in Contemporary and Hip-hop dance styles, but I have experience in other styles such as Jazz, Commercial, Musical Theatre, Ballroom and Latin. I also enjoy singing and acting, especially when performing in Musical Theatre shows. In the future, I want to make an impact on worldwide issues, including extinction, animal cruelty and prejudices like racism and sexism, using dance as a resource to accomplish this. I also want to travel and explore different countries, cultures and experience dance across the world.

As a third year, I have developed my facilitation through an independent research project as well as devising and performing a newly commissioned work with dance artist Elisa McCauley as part of UCLan Dance Company, which can be viewed through the link on the feature image. My independent project explored how my facilitation can support the health and wellbeing of older movers through dance, which gave me the opportunity to explore a more inclusive way of teaching. As a result, it gave me inspiration of a possible area of community dance I might like to pursue in the future.
