Hi! I'm a Choreographer and Movement Director based in London.
After training for three years at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts I worked as a performer in both musicals and plays. After a few years I started to also work in immersive theatre with companies such as Punchdrunk, with puppets and on more experimental projects. It was during this time that the urge to create and collaborate grew and I now devote all my time to the creative side of productions.
I've trained in a diverse mix of styles. Ballet through to Street, Jazz to Ballroom, Lindy Hop and most in between. I've trained with companies like Frantic Assembly and am currently doing my Stage Combat exams. When working as a Movement Director I use a lot of ensemble building techniques, Laban, Le Coq influences and have created a practice which empowers, connects and encourages creativity in the performer.
Through supporting and encouraging performers, my aim is always help them push their boundaries, especially in areas where they may have never felt comfortable before. I want to unleash everybody’s inner dancer, even those who don’t believe it’s there. Freeing up performers is a big focus of mine so both those who tell me they have two left feet (that's never true by the way...) and those who are experienced technical dancers can reach new physical dimensions.
Having also worked as a Resident and Assistant Director and Director, I have keen eye for detail. I work closely with all of the creative team to make our work fluid and collaborative.
As a creator I am passionate about engaging with a wider audience though physical and imaginative storytelling. I work with the charity The Flying Seagull Project who visit areas of crisis around the world, primarily in refugee camps, bringing joy through dance, music and play to those most in need.
I also teach and choreograph at a number of top drama schools.
Please get in touch if you’d like to chat or know more.
