I have starred in 5 musicals as singing lead roles- Beauty and the Beast (Belle), Seussical (Gertrude McFuzz), Honk! (Maureen- I also was the solo soprano), Just Desserts (Claire) and The Little Mermaid (Ursula).
I have been a member of Impact Dance & Stage School's Company Kids, a group of roughly 25 singers and dancers, for the past 5 years.
I have been chosen to sing in the Christchurch Schools' Music Festival twice (2010, 2012). I was one of 13 top auditionees and was asked to record the 2013 choirs' CD, which is usually recorded by a solo woman.
I have also been selected to sing solo parts in song and dance items, and received a 2nd place medal for my song and tap competition routine in 2010. I have taken singing lessons for the past 6/7 years. I will be continuing these next year.
I have participated in the Christchurch International Musical Theatre Summer School for 2014 to 2017, and was the youngest auditionee from a group of many to be chosen as one of 14 for a singing masterclass in 2014.
I am currently singing in the New Zealand Secondary Students' Choir.

TV & Reality

I have not had much TV experience, however I have performed on the NZ kid's TV show 'What Now' multiple times- not just in the audience, but as a guest or performer. I have filmed one episode of a TV show (that was just for fun originally) that was directed and praised by a professional director. I have also had a lot of performing experience, having sung live solos at least 22 times in various performances, and performing since the age of 2, along with performing a lead character in 7 productions.

I have taken dance classes since the age of 2. Experience is as follows:

JAZZ- 2003 to now
CONTEMPORARY- 2012 and 2014-2016

MUSICAL THEATRE- 2007 to now.
I have been a member of Impact Dance & Stage School's Company Kids, a group of roughly 25 singers and dancers, for the past 4 years.
I received a 1st place trophy and medal for my Tap competition solo in 2008, and received Highly Commended for that same dance in a separate competition. I have also received a 3rd place medal for a different competition in 2010, and and received a 2nd place medal for my song and tap competition routine that same year. I was also selected as part of a tap competitions team in 2008, and we won gold.
I have also occasionally been selected for small solos within dance routines.
Contemporary - Theory = Excellence, Practical = Excellence, Overall = Excellence
Jazz - AJDA, Intermediate 2 (the 9th grade), Honours
Hip Hop- Elementary 2, Highly Commended
My strong point is definitely tap. I have passed my final exam, Advanced (the 11th grade) in the BAL syllabus with Distinction, with an overall mark of 94, and I have been doing tap for the longest. It is the style of dance I do most!
I have participated in the Christchurch International Musical Theatre Summer School for 2014 to 2017.
I have taken part in multiple contemporary dance lessons with 18-year-old Juilliard student, Josh Guillemot-Rodgerson.
I have also performed in the chorus of many productions, and have regularly performed up to eleven items in our twice-a-year shows for my performing arts school.
