Ever passionate about dance, I began ballet classes from a young age with Mary Gibson-Madden in my home town of Cork, Ireland. I never wanted to stop dancing since!
I completed my Diploma in Dance in Cork before moving to London to train intensively to degree level in many different dance styles (London Studio Centre). I recently graduated from Roehampton University with a first class honours Masters degree in Dance, specialising in Anthropology of Dance: the study of dance, people and culture. The outcome of my research will soon be available online, watch this space!
I have enjoyed a fruitful and thrilling dance career performing in theatres, circuses, festivals, cabarets and film sets in Morocco, Spain, Turkey, India, the UAE and the USA. I continue to enjoy the pleasure of bringing dance into people’s lives through my dance teaching work in London to professional, semi-professional, rising stars and dance novices! My other passion is Pilates, which has always been integrated into my dance training and is part of my daily routine. I am a Level 3 Pilates qualified instructor and love helping people develop their strength through Pilates.
I am currently performing weekly cabaret, samba, burlesque and bellydance shows with The Folly Mixtures at Cafe de Paris, Bunga Bunga, Club Tropicana, Coco Southend and Privee Knightsbridge. I teach Pilates and barre (ballet based toning) for Gymbox and Virgin Active as well as private dance and Pilates lessons in my home studio (see Classes &Courses).
