“I absolutely loved my time at Middlesbrough College and found it was the perfect stepping stone to prepare me for stage school auditions and full time dance training. 

“After College I gained a place on the 3 year BA Honours dance course at The Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts (LIPA). My LIPA experience was completely life changing, over my 3 years there I grew so much, not only as a dancer but as a person, and I made friends for life with people from all over the world. The training I received was extremely intense and a lot of hard work, but this was exactly what I needed to prepare me for the industry.

“At my LIPA graduation in 2017 I was awarded a 3 month scholarship to further my training at Broadway Dance Centre in New York City. Living and dancing in NYC everyday for 3 months was truly a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. I had the pleasure of learning from some incredibly inspiring American choreographers.

“Once I got back to the UK I auditioned to be a character & parade performer at Disneyland Paris and booked the job. I spent the whole of 2019 performing at Disney and had the most magical year!

“I’m hoping to be back working for the Walt Disney Company again very soon!”
