Choreography- creating dances is great fun whether for the special moment of a newly-weds' first dance, a grand baroque opera or even a unique May-pole dance to be performed for HRH Queen Elizabeth. I have done them all!

Teaching- Teaching is my passion and am happy to work one-to-one or with large groups. If you have never danced before, just starting or an experienced dancer who wishes to tidy up their technique I would love to work with you. I am a fully qualified classical ballet teacher (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing- Cecchetti Branch) who trained at The Rambert School of Dance. I have taught classes for the St. Petersburg Ball, Cecchetti Society. I am currently the performing arts teacher at The Vineyard School, Richmond.
