A graduate of the royal Academy of Dance, I worked with leading dance company education units, including English National Ballet, London Contemporary’s The Place, The Royal Ballet and Candoco, the UK’s leading dance company of disabled and non disabled dancers.


 


Since moving north in 2012 after New Zealand  and London respectively, I began to focus on my interest in dance, health & wellbeing.  I was invited to co-manage a Cumbrian wide project in dance for dementia, Dancing Recall, working alongside a neurological physiotherapist.


 


As associate Artist of Dance Art Foundation, I have helped to introduce the work of London based Dance Art Foundation dance in health programme, Breathing Space to the North.  Breathing Space projects take place on children hospices and most recently, on the Special Care Baby Unit at Cumberland Infirmary working with families.


 


In partnership with the University of Cumbria faculties of arts and of health, I run About Being, a programme for stroke survivors.  Weekly sessions also take place on the stroke unit at Cumberland Infirmary.  Working interdisciplinary across health and arts is a key component of the programme.


 


In 2016/17, with G4A funding, I explored the provision of dance in heath in rural locations in north Cumbria.  A part of the project was working at Cumbrian hospitals, including Cumberland Infirmary where I now manage projects for the Trust’s art project, Healing Arts.
