Teaching or Choreography ability
I am currently studying part time at the Urdang Academy doing a DDE in modern theatre. Also, I teach at a dance school in the north east and choreograph for the Blyth Phoenix theatre. I graduated in 2020 with a first class honours degree and would love to further my experience as a graduated dancer/performer.
I have dance experience in many styles of dance including -
I have been the dance captain for the past 4 shows I have appeared in, including my final university show. I had to take over the role of choreographer due to the choreographer leaving the show as well as performing and I have a lot of choreographing lined up towards the end of the year.
Highland Dancing - I won the All England Adult Championship in 2017 and have consecutively placed in the top 3 for the past 7 years. I am a qualified Highland Dancing teacher and member of the BATD. I have won many local and regional competitions and received high marks in all exams. I have competed at the world championships since 2012 and have worked my way from a beginner dancer up to the top level of a premier championship dancer.
Street dance - I qualified as a street dance instructor in 2018 with UDO and the BDO street dance Champion 2 years running (2017&2018) in the under 16 group and over 16 duo (twice) and parent&child duo section. I came runner up in solo and duo in a north east UDO qualifying heat, allowing us to qualify for the World, European and British UDO street dance championships. I performed at the World UDO street dance championships and my goal is to take my dancers there to place in the top 6. I have placed in every competition I have ever done in either solo, duo or group sections and have choreographed many winning/placing solo and duos.
I teach street, contemporary, modern theatre and commercial at a competitive level. I create routines for competition and teach technique, choreography for a range of ages beginner - intermediate level.
Modern jazz - I am currently studying a DDE in modern theatre at the Urdang Academy and I have taken my intermediate dance exam and have years of performance experience.
Ballet - I have taken my intermediate dance exam with the IDTA and previously done exams with the RAD. I will be working towards my associate with Northern Counties.
Tap - I have a small knowledge of tap but would love to advance on this.
Cheerleading - I have done 2 years worth of cheerleading with basic knowledge of arm positions and traveling movements.
I have an extremely technical eye for dancers and a huge passion for what I do.
