Other competencies/relevant information

During my time teaching after having graduated from RAD, I have taught every single level of RAD ballet, including Advanced 2. Whilst training I participated in a number of different summer schools, I have also gained some experience in pas de deux, repertoire and choreographing. Living in boarding houses with many other students for 6 years, and also living in shared accommodation throughout my time at The Royal Academy of Dance, has provided me with the essential experience and knowledge about cooperation, among many different people and personalities, from a variety of different countries and walks of life. 

I have experience in teaching ballet, jazz and contemporary to a variety of abilities and ages.

I also have experience in tap, in addition to other styles of dance mentioned previously.

I have efficient needle skills, useful for costume preparation for both performances and competitions. My brother and I have won the UK National Paradance Championships in our category 3 times consecutively.
