Teaching or Choreography ability
Unlike most dancers, i was a late starter. I started dancing at the age of 8 and held interest in contemporary and Street Dance, i soon decided to only follow Street Dance until i was 16 in which i then gained an interest in contemporary fusion/urban contemporary. I have since developed a strong network with a variety of artists. I have been teaching and assisting since i was 12 years old and have since become a fully qualified teacher with an Associate Teacher's qualification under the NATD exam board as well as a professional Student Teacher qualification in addition to the several amateur exams (ranging from grade three to gold cross), again these are all under the NATD exam board. I have, on many occasions, been invited to dance schools/workshops around the country as a guest choreographer and teacher whilst teaching my own regular classes at a dance school in Derby. I have many years experience in competing in street dance as a soloist as well as in a team. Over the years of competing i have managed to gain various titles such as; under 14's midland soloist champion, reigning midland champions with Trinity Elite- a group established by Got To Dance stars Trinity Warriors, twice 4th Female soloist in the over 16's advanced world championships, 1st in the over 18's advanced quad category in the world championships, 2nd in the over 16's advanced duo category at the world championships and various team, duo, quad and soloist awards at the British Championships. On several occasions i have been asked to take part in various music and promotional videos for various up-coming as well as established street dance artists and companies. Whilst competing, performing and teaching form my main experience, choreography also contributes to this foundation. I have experience in choreographing for various shows put on by dance schools, several amateur school musical productions and a cover music video to UK music artist Sigala's song 'Sweet Lovin' as requested by Sigala himself. I have also developed my training at Manchester Metropolitan University by studying a Dance (BA Hons) degree in which i got the chance to work with well established dance artists in the contemporary style.
