“My time at Middlesbrough College is one of my fondest memories and a time I will always look back on. It was one of the biggest turning points in my life. 

“Middlesbrough College helped me figure out the career I wanted to pursue and the staff played a huge part in helping me to realise my potential and pushing me further than I knew I could go. 

“I learnt a vast array of skills during my two year study, skills that both built my character and laid the foundations of what I would need in order to succeed as an artist. 

“To anyone considering a career in the arts, I cannot stress enough how much knowledge, skills and confidence you will gain by studying with the amazing staff at Middlesbrough College.

“After I completed my studies at Middlesbrough College, I successfully gained a place at The London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS), studying here 2007-2010. My time at LCDS was both challenging and rewarding, I learnt a number of new styles and subjects of study that really made me grow as a person and an artist. 

“I have since had a 10 year professional career in the arts and have worked with some incredible people from all over the globe. I have had the opportunity to perform with companies such as PunchDrunk, Secret Cinema, Upswing Aerial and Ockhams Razor Circus Theatre. 

“I have performed and choreographed in many countries such as Canada, USA, Jordan, Argentina and all across Europe. My career is now focused on teaching and choreography, and for the past 5 years I have been teaching at London Studio Centre.

“My most recent choreographic endeavour was as Remount Choreographer for Scottish Opera’s production of ‘Nixon in China’.”
