I’ve been dancing since I was a young girl, and as the years have gone on due to experiences and opportunaties I have been lucky enough to have, I have grown to love dance more and more. I am 17 and currently studying for my A levels, as well as being a part of Dance4′s CAT.

My role as a regional young dance leader is perfect for me and I look forward to taking on the challenge!
