I joined the Katrina Hughes School of Dance at a very young age and have had the opportunity to further my career as a dancer and teacher at the school.  I became a fully qualified Classical Ballet Teacher with the BBO (British Ballet Organisation) in 2008.

Like my colleagues I have had the opportunity to dance in many locations such as Paris, Bavaria, London, Spain and many more!

I believe that every child will receive fantastic experiences through the school as I did!

I began dancing at the Katrina Hughes School of Dance at a young age and couldn't have wished for a better place to be. I have had many once in a lifetime opportunity's to dance in many shows both locally and abroad including London, Blackpool, Austria, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland and France.

In 2011 I began my teaching training with the BBO (British Ballet Organisation) which is due to complete by the end of 2012.

I am very proud to be part of the school and of all the experiences and achievements I have accomplished.
