What do you want people to get from your class?

I want people to feel like they are 100% comfortable to try to exercises, movements and techniques that are new to them without fear of judgement. I want them to leave the the studio feeling like they learned something new, like they’ve improved since the last class they’ve taken and like they are being challenged!

What motivates you to dance?

So many things motivate me to dance; hearing new music is a big one, certain spaces that inspire me, as well as new styles, like seeing new ways of movement. Other dancers is a huge one though, seeing how other people move just blows my mind and makes me want to get back into the studio myself as soon as possible.

What are some of the highlights of your dance career as a dancer/choreographer?

I’ve been very lucky to be able to travel for many intensives and events, but my favourite place I think I’ve been fortunate even to travel to for dance has been Barcelona! Nothing quite like doing ballet in 45 degree heat, then heading straight to the roof top pool to cool down.  But another major highlight in my career was when I could finally say Ij made dance my full time job.
