I was a very successful teacher of dance for 27 years teaching up to A-level standard until retiring. I choreographed/produced/directed a prolific amount of highly polished dance shows and musical productions in both small and large scale professional venues. I frequently performed with the students and performed with a teachers performance group whilst teaching in London. For the last 10 years I have attended an Adult Contemporary Dance class on a regular basis and thoroughly enjoy informal performance evenings with the group.

My training lies mainly in Contemporary Dance and I love fusing different styles of Release, Alston, Bruce, Contact Improvisation & Physical Theatre. I also love performing Bollywood, Lindy Hop and Musical Theatre. I am a quick learner, extremely expressive and energetic
