“If you work hard enough, anything in life is achievable. I started my training in dance when I was 18. I knew there were others that had been dancing since they were 3. I knew it was hard but all I said to myself is ‘I need to get to their level in 3 years’. I spent every day in a studio, going over exercises, stretching and choreography. That passion and determination has made me the person I am today. I am now in the Westend, a new theatre choreographer and have my own Company. My aim in this life is to give back as much knowledge as I can to the next generation through, my new training program (The Training Course – Industry Ready), as well as become a well renowned Choreographer.”
