Modern & Dance

I began dancing at the age of 6, starting with Ballet, at my local dance school Bernese School of Theatre Dance and Drama in Blackburn Lancashire. I gradually added to my dance classes with Modern, Jazz, Street and Tap. I took many exams in Modern and Ballet achieving Distinctions and Merits throughout and now I am proud to say I am in the final level of both Modern and Ballet – Advanced 2. During my time here I performed in the school shows, our local theatre pantomimes yearly and toured the country with the school performing at various theatres such as Birmingham Hippodrome! Along side these shows I took part in SOAR Hip-Hop group competitions receiving both 1st and 3rd place in our first competition.

At the age of 18 I then travelled down to Berkshire and furthered my Dance training at Creative Academy. With the CA Team I performed in various shows, performed for 3 years in various MOVEIT performances and showcases and also Choreographed and performed for a club in Manchester ‘Neighbourhood’ as my first professional job. During my time here is when I found my love for teaching and so I studied for a year and achieved my Modern DDI and am looking to further this in receiving it in Ballet and then completing both by achieving my DDE.
