Freelance Dance Artist

  • Location: Manchester
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available

I am an early careers artist based in Manchester/Cheshire. I have gained a range of professional experience so far in my career and wish to continue as a freelance Dance Artist and choreographer. I am now beginning to develop my own work which I plan to take it to festivals and small venues accross the UK. 

I have trained within a number of difference dance styles such as: Contemprary dance, contact work, Improvisation, Ballet, Modern and Jazz and aslo carry a background in drama and phsical theatre.

One of my greatest experiences so far was back in January this year.I have worked as an Apprentice Performer as part of 'The Chit Chat Chat Chalk Show', a childrens Dance Theatre production. This piece was taken to a number of schools accross the country which included delivering fun and interactive workshops to the students. I have also performed and toured as a dancer for Allegiant Dance Theatre. I have taught classes in Street Dance/Jazz to chidren for a number of years and have gained a variety of skills throughout her time at Aspinall Academy of Dance.

Most revently I have become part of an up and coming all female dance company based in Manchester called Coalese. We have just created our first work 'Whats mine is yours?' which premiered at Turn Festival 2017 at the Contact Theatre in Manchester. The next step will be to Apply for an R&D to develop this work further.
