I have a First and National Diploma in Performing arts and continued my passion on into higher education. I graduated with a Foundation Degree in Acting performance and now have a strong interest in Physical Theatre. I have studied many forms of acting during my degree some of which included: Classical, melo dramatic, contemporary,musical, methodical and realistic acting ect. So I feel I have the relevant skills for this position. I have experience with working in a theatre environment with large audiences and also have extensive experience of working in front of the camera for filming projects.I featured in a number of music videos for Up and coming artists, which involved me acting out different roles. I understand the difference between live and camera work and can also think is almost as valuable as working experience. I led a very large project back in 2010 called Yorkshire Day, this was an experimental piece and included a lot of work with the audience. I also worked as an extra on a major Bolltwood film to be released on Aug 2015 . I've performed in numerous theatres such as Carriageworks in Leeds and also had live dance performances in The Victoria Theatre so you can see that am comfortable in that environment. As part of my degree, I had access to our own in house theatre and I understand that specific working environment which I learned to demonstrate technique in my work

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I have done bridal modelling before as well as face modelling and have a large number of photographs. Although this was not at a professional level, it adds to my work experience and is something I am good at. As my background is in performance I am not camera shy at all and I feel this is another reason I work well on shoots. I actually do cat-walk choreography too and teach models to walk on the run way so I know I have the confidence. I have always wanted to do modelling and family and friends tell me that my athletic build and chiselled look work well for the camera.

Dance styles
  • Bellydance
  • Bollywood
  • Contemporary

With 10 years of experience in mainly dance with a strong bollywood influence, i've performed all over the uk in many venues from the G-mex arena in Manchester to the 02 Arena in London. I was shortlisted for the uk dance finals for Hrithik Roshans ' Just Dance'. I focus on translating the music and lyrics of songs to deliver peices that most of the time require a fusion of streetdance to contemporary to bellydanece etc...Although I am influenced by bollywood, I am inspired by dance as an artform. I was awarded the national runner up for the uk back in 2008 for the Global Indian dance competition 'Boogie Woogie'. I feel that over the recent years i have grown from strength to strength and will keep on growing. I also have experience in teaching dance and am very dedicated and compassionate towards my students. I am determained and passionate and LOVE to dance and share this passion with the world!!
