I was classically trained to sing from a young age, and have always had the ability to make my voice powerful and to sing lead roles. I instantly started winning competitions and taking lead roles in musical productions by pace and the citizens theatre. For example I played the role of Gilenda in the musical Wicked. I have always been greatly interested by music and it's ability to move people and change emotions etc. I began to learn to play the piano and got to grade three before I started focussing more on the flute. When I was younger I would visit my gran in the nursing home and bring my flute and play to all the residents, not only to improve my playing and performance abilities but to give them something different and exciting. After that I wanted to further my musical ability and I started to teach myself how to play the guitar both acoustic and electric. I have made various songs and musical pieces of my own, I love writing my own music, as it is completely unique, something no one has heard and it's original to me and relates to me. I most love performing in musicals, being able to lose myself in the music which has a story line and be able to dance along to it. It's like a feeling I just can't explain, it's a complete out of this world experience, where you can leave the real world behind and become a character.

I have been dancing since I was a very young child and branched into pretty much almost every kind of dance there is: Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Street, Salsa, Argentine Tango, Latin and Ballroom (10 dance; Jive, Paso Doble, Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Tango, Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Quick Step, Foxtrot), Ceroc, Bachata, Zouk, Kizombe, American Smooth, Burlesque, Pole etc with a few exceptions.

I have won many titles and trophies over the years of these types of dancing including the Intermediate World Modern Jive Champion. I have only recently ventured out into Latin and Ballroom however I have already done a few demonstrations, mainly for singers including; Barbara Bryceland off the televsion show the voice which was filmed by the BBC for a documentary.

I am currently studying Drama and Performance at University, where I have been involved in various societies including the dance society, drama society and Cheerleading. All of which I have participated in the Choreography of different competition and show dance routines. Firstly the Dance Society I helped piece together a competition winning Contemporary routine, the moves themselves were not extremely tricky due to the fact I was dealing with inexperienced dancers, so made the music more epic to highlight the dancing. The Drama Society asked me to help them come up with a Cell Block Tango influenced showcase piece that involved speaking roles, so I had to be careful to not have the speaker being to active that it would ruin their vocal performance but not standing stationary, also this was all on a very small budget including costumes etc but we pulled it off and looked pretty impressive and scary! Cheerleading, on the other hand was a little hard to choreograph as Cheer dance is a form of dance I had never done before but once I got started, the creative juices just started flowing!

I am currently working on a Chicago themed Showcase for competition, which involves six dancers. As they are from all over Scotland and England, it is hard to have rehearsals together, so I must get the choreography set and try to think about how six dancers would move around the space to come up with something genius. All the music is complete and we have started work on the routine, I have a helper who gives me ideas and helps with different positions etc, which is very helpful as its more than just my opinion on a performance which is very important when it comes to a group showcase.

I have said only a little of my dancing experience but didn't want to turn this into an essay. Please contact me, I would love to be part of the troupe.

Film & Stage Crew

I have been a part of a few short films for mainly film students, I am unable to retrieve the film as the University said these are confidential.
I have also been a part of a music video for RAC Productions, which has been posted on my Starnow page.
