About me

I am a trained dance practitioner with classical and contemporary background.
I have travelled around Europe touring, indulged in R&D work and explored a wide range of site-specific projects including renown Bodies in Urban Spaces with Willie Dorner.
I enjoy contributing in growth and development of small independent projects, but equally thrive in the vast excitement of creating a choreography at the Royal Albert Hall.
I value working in partnership with leading institutions and organisations, using my experience as an independent artist to nourish the creative process, exploration of the productions I am working with.
I advance in delivering work to professionals and university level students and enjoy travelling while teaching. I have travelled to Russia, Mexico, Italy, UK and Norway with my work. Meeting different cultures influence my praksis and broadens my perspective as an artist. The effect of current cultural and political changes around the world today marks my work.

Additional Information

To support my growth as a dance practitioner I seek opportunities where I can enrich my experience. By exploring the work of other artist that inspires me, I draw references between my own work and others. The work whom I have explored: Andrew Morrish, Theo Clinkard, DV8, Akram Kahn, Ballets C de la B, Hofesh, Lea Anderson, Carte Blanch, Ultima Vez, Grotowski, Gecko Theatre, Kedja dance, Two truths and participation in improvisation labs.
I attended management and first aid courses (Brent Council).
I attend daily training/practise to maintain technique.
In 2015/16 I was recipient of the Dance UK/CDP mentor programme with Emma Gladstone as my mentor.
