I am a junior careers artist based in Manchester. Throughout my education I have gained professional experience that i will continue to develop and explore as a freelance Dance Artist. 

I am highly interested in teaching within dance education, i want to futher my teaching skills, gaining oppotunities to teach different ages and explore different styles of dance.

I teach dance across primary schools around Salford, with a company who improve the skills of children in every area of PE that we teach and develop life-long positive attitudes to sport, physical activity and healthy living. Our approach is designed to make sessions fun and accessible to each individual child.

Previous Volunteer at Z-arts, a charity based organisation in Hulme. Assisting dance and mix-art classes, working creativley with children. 

Alongside my passion within the arts, travel is an important part of my life, any opportunities or experiences I get to travel I thrive to achieve. After my 1st year of University I travelled around Europe for 6 weeks, which lead to me learning about different cultures and environments. Giving me an extra passion and drive to explore more in the future.

As an award winner of The University of Salford, Santander's Travel Award. I am currently in the process of travelling to Singapore for a 4-week internship program in October 2018. Exploring how dance can enrich and develop children, how it can be a part of everyday life and activity.
