I have trained in dance for just over six years now and have developed my skills in a range off different style. This includes, Jazz, Ballet, Musical Theatre, Latino and Salsa, Commercial dance, Hiphop and Contemporary. I also have completed level 1 - 3 of NCEA Dance and and have trained in choreography for four years. I also have experience in video editing and sound editing. Other skills include dance photography and design.
Some of the incredible teachers I've had the fortune of working with as a student and learning under their guidance include, Julia Mckerrow, Alison Rossitor and Kate Limuola.
Overall I am extremely passionate about dance, I considered pursuing it as a career but due to personal choices decided to take another path. However I am not giving up on dance which is why I'm here on this website. I love dance so much and it is such a strong part of me. Moving to Wellington has been an incredible experience so far and I am loving it but I'm aching to dive into a dance related project. Thankyou for your time and I hope I can be of some interest.
