I always knew I wanted to work as a professional Ballroom Dance Teacher since I first fell in love with dancing at a young age. I’ve had plenty of experience working with students of all levels and skills - from beginners to open competitors. No matter who I’m teaching, I thrive on seeing my students grow and develop as they discover what they can achieve.

With parents as teachers and growing up in a dance school it was inevitable that I would follow my Mothers footsteps. In 2003 I joined my Mother, Eileen, to provide extra support within the class environment. I now provide support classes, Wedding First Dance tuition/choreography whilst training to compete in competitions around the UK.
