BIOGRAPHY

I am a dancer, yogi , traveller , living between Portugal and the UK. My training started from a young age when I attended the Arts Educational School , Tring where I studied acting, dancing,  arts and singing. From there I ventured in attaining my BA Hons at London Contemporary Dance School, London, graduating in 2008. 

From graduation I have worked for many interesting and varied companies, choreographers including Dan Canham/ StillHouse,Neil Callaghan and Simone Kenyon, Laura Dannequin, Oona Doherty Dance , Junk Ensemble, Aletta Collins, Laila Diallo, Marc Brew, StillHouse, Impermanence Dance Theatre, Neon Dance,  Rosie Kay Dance, C-12 Dance Theatre, Lorena Randi, Willi Dornier, to name but a few. The work has also toured Nationally and Internationally taking me to countries like China, Georgia , Eastern Europe, Europe and many others. 

Alongside working for companies I have worked in Operas (UK and France), a performer for research work for top west end show ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ , music videos and film, giving me a varied and open career.

Within this I also open my branches and interests into rehearsal direction , movement direction and teaching. Of which I have done for many a company.

My immense love of travel took me to India in 2013 where I became a certified Yoga teacher. I have continued to practice yoga throughout the years and believe it truly supports my body throughout my dancing days. In April this year I also attained my Yin Yoga Teacher trying at Triyoga, London.

My main interest in dance is within human connection, collaborative performance , non orthodox environments and being part of productions with subject matters that have something to say , be it political, environmental or spiritual. 

At the moment I live and work between Uk and Portugal. The next chapter begins in Portugal where I will be setting up a space to run artist residencies and retreats.
