I have been dancing and competing since the age of 5 in a range of different styles including freestyle, Latin and ballroom, street/hip hop, contemporary, jazz and lyrical to name a few. During my time at university I also had the opportunity to teach Latin and Ballroom and have a competing street dance team.
Over the years I have had the privilege to work with many different industry professionals that helped me to grow as a dancer and choreographer. I have also achieved numerous titles throughout my competing years including holding 1st in the country for street dance for 5/6 consecutive years.
