“I studied Performing Arts at The Waterfront Theatre School from January 2008- December 2011, majoring in Dance. Here I trained in Classical Ballet, Modern Theatre Dance, Jazz Dance and Tap Dance. I had the privilege of taking part in a wide variety of show work and also attained my teaching qualifications in all the mentioned genres of dance, making me a registered teacher for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance based in the UK.
For the last 5 years, I have had the privilege of teaching a wide variety of dance styles to different age groups starting at the young age of three years all the way up to young adults. Over the last year, I have been privileged enough to become a part of the Mint Teaching Team and to obtain my qualification as a Pilates Instructor. It has been such an amazing journey so far and I am really looking forward to the future with Mint”
