I was born and raised in Reading Berkshire and started dancing at 10 years old. Following in the footsteps of my mother who was also a dancer, I studied Ballroom, Latin American, Tap, Old Time and Modern Sequence. After a successful period as an amateur medalist competitor I finally gained my professional qualification in Ballroom and Latin American at age 22 with the ISTD. I continued to compete as a professional and was a regular finalist in the ISTD Basic And Standards Professional Ballroom and also won the ISTD Professional Latin. I concentrate mainly on teaching Ballroom and Latin American now and have been fortunate enough to teach in Spain and USA. I'm now settled in Bournemouth and am looking forward to a new venture with Dance Madness
