After graduating from Northumbria University in Newcastle with a BA in Performance, I have been teaching Performing Arts (dance, drama and performing arts) for the last 5 years at a Secondary school in a seaside town called Hornsea on the east coast of England.

I was the lead dance teacher at the school, developing a curriculum and inspiring students to dance across all year groups.  I have delivered a variety of extra-curricular activities, such as dance and drama clubs. I have run whole school productions with the team, including ‘Chicago’ and ‘Hairspray’. I have invited dance companies to work with my students, most recently 'Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance' and 'Northern School of Contemporary Dance', to give students as many opportunities as possible; I hope to continue this at NAS Dubai. 

Within my lessons my enjoyment and enthusiasm for dance is always shown. I feel that my nurturing personality and great relationships with students helps them to build their creativity and confidence. 

I have a great passion for dance, especially contemporary dance. I love teaching and dancing myself in which I have done so since the age of 3, performing in a variety of shows and have taken a variety of dance examinations. I am very excited to continue to develop dance NAS, with the aim of enhancing the students’ love and enjoyment for the subject at all ages! Not only do I have a fervour for dance but Performing Arts in general! I play the piano, love to sing, have a great love for music and I love to ski! I have a great passion to venture to new places in the world and see what the world has to offer. 

I am thrilled to be living in Dubai with my husband and our dog - Cookie (a small black adorable Shih Tzu). I feel our new lives in Dubai are brilliant as the UAE has so much to offer.
