I am a dancer/ singer/ contortionist based in the UK and looking for work worldwide.
I am 5'6, and have STCW-95 training and ENG1 medical. I have just come to the end of a 7 month contract with Louis Cruises and am now appearing as Princess Melissa in Rumplestiltskin for Bangers and Mash Theatre
My contract for Louis Cruise line involved working as a dancer, contortionist and cover vocalist which I loved. I have excellent acro gymnastic skills.
I have acted professionally in a number of productions including The Tempest for Peter Lathan, The 39 Steps for Oil Lamp Productions and the Italian Tour of West Side Story as Maria for Palketto Stage.
Dance work includes performing in 80's Mania UK national tour as a dancer and acrobat as well as many corporate events and shoes around the UK.
I am trained to professional level in many styles including ballet, contemporary, tap, hip hop, jazz and commercial and have a first class honours degree in contemporary dance from Sunderland University as well as taking the Dynamic Body Intensive course at Laban Creekside.
I am a trained soprano vocalist and have trained with English National Opera star Graeme Danby. I also play piano and violin to a good standard.
I play the piano and violin to a good standard and am experienced in many other skills such as stilt walking, human statue, living table, fire dancing, puppetry (large and small), skin character work
