LYRICAL JAZZ COMMERCIAL JAZZ MUSICAL THEATRE DREAMSTARS
Here is a little something about me.... I started dancing at an age of 4 studying ballet and tap at Dennisdor School of Dance. From then i had the inspiration of being a dancer. During School i took part in many after school dance classes including DANCE WITH ATTITUDE and SUZANNE HILL SCHOOL OF DANCE. I then left school and carried on to college leaving with a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts (Dance). I followed my heart and kept dancing, at the of 18 i left home to join a holiday camp in devon (Lyme Bay Holiday Village) which was an over 50s site. I was promoted to Dance Captain after only 3months which meant i was in charge of choreographing routines for 5 different shows a week and look after my group of dancers. After 2 years i realised i would like to work with children and left to become a Bluecoat for Pontins. I was also Head Dancer here and it was a very rewarding job. Some nights we performed 3 shows!! To end off a short season at Pontins i worked in Cyprus as a dancer for 3months. When the holiday season began again i moved to Parkdean Starparks to be closer to home and was here for a year before i had my beautiful baby boy Jaydon. As you can see from my experience I have had a taste of how the entertainment business is run and appreciate how daunting it is for any one who hasnt experienced it. My aim as an instructor is to make this more comfortable for my students whichever path they choose to take whether it is to go on to a top london dance school, go on cruise ships, work abroad and even the holiday parks. I aim to train them to high standard of technical abililty whilst giving them a boost of confidence along the way.
I would like to thank my mum Sam and my fiance Matt for helping me achieve my dream of becoming a teacher. Also a few other names to be mentioned are Emma Williams and Jenny Williams from Dance with Attitude. Without them i couldn't be here today either.
