Professional Dancer and MFA in Dance Performance student offering 1-2-1 or group dance classes in and around London.

Methodology

Lessons will be delivered from my own planning and experience. I specialise in ballet, contemporary, and creative dance and I can lead awakening dance sessions. I consider myself an artist, researcher and teacher therefore my teaching will be pulled on from my artistic and research qualities too. I aim to teach students about dance that goes beyond the 'doing' of the art form.

Experience

I am a trained professional dancer and MFA in Dance Performance student looking at leading 1-2-1 or group dance classes. Over the past 5 years, I have taught a variety of ages and people from all different backgrounds. I have a great amount of experience working within dance, and I was a company member of Transitions Dance Company 2020.

Teaching Assistant for KS4 and Post-16 students

In 2019, I graduated with a First Class Honours undergraduate degree in Contemporary Dance and I am currently a student of MFA in Dance Performance – both at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. As part of the MFA, I was a company member of Transitions Dance Company 2020. During this academic year, I will a part of the 2020/2021 cohort of Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures ‘Overture’ – a professional development programme that is aimed towards artists working in the community.

Although I have trained as a professional dancer, I have a mix of teaching experiences and working with a variety of age groups. Before I began my undergraduate training, my first teaching experience began as an assistant for my former dance teacher who was in the final trimester of her pregnancy. This opportunity gave me an insight into what skills, planning, and preparation were needed when working with KS4 and Post-16 students. By the end of my time there, I was planning, creating and teaching my classes. However, at the time, I did not have any additional formal experience or training to support me to fulfil teaching any further.

During my professional dance training, I chose the teaching electives during my second and third year, which focused on developing the skills and knowledge for teaching in the community and teaching dance technique. I was able to put these skills into practice as I began assisting for the children’s creative dance classes with the Dance Learning and Participation Department at Laban. I have now been in this role for 3 years, and during my time I have worked with a variety of age groups – from toddlers to 16-year-olds, as well as the inclusive group, Dance Ability. By assisting with these classes, I have developed my understanding of teaching styles and techniques, what is required as a teaching assistant and understood teaching for young people – all of which has helped me realise my identity as a teacher.

With my experiences combined, I would like to further enhance and understand my practice as a teacher. I have grown to enjoy and have a strong passion for teaching and understand the power that effective teaching has on students across any subject. Passion, interest and knowledge of a subject and of teaching can fast-track the learning development of a student – which I have first-hand experience with and I find extremely rewarding. Although my main expertise is in dance, I believe effective teaching can inspire
people of all ages, bring together communities, build people’s confidence, shift and broaden thinking, compliment other areas of interest, and allow students to excel more than they ever expected.

I have ambition of becoming a Professor within education and dance, and my role as a practitioner are linked together as an artist, researcher, and teacher. By developing my teaching practice, I can see how this will inform my other work as also as an artist and researcher.

I have a strong passion for working with young people of all ages. I am creative, energetic, patient, delicate, and a strong leader. As an artist, I have had to ensure I can build personality, character, confidence, drive and passion – which I believe are all characteristics in the development of students on their learning journey.
