I started dancing at the age of seven at the Sue Latham School. I auditioned for the ‘The Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama’ and gained a full scholarship to the college. While I was there I represented the college at many events, including ‘Sheffield Music Festival’ where I danced alongside ‘Steps’, ‘Damage’, and others. I completed a Musical Theatre course with distinction and also gained more scholarships whilst attending MADD.
I have since performed across the globe aboard cruise ships and on ITV, Playing Stephanie from Lazy Town, Dancer on the X Factor tour and Britain’s Got Talent tour. I was backing vocalist for 911, Dancer and Head Girl on Stephen Mulhern’s Variety Tour and had principle roles in pantomimes in the UK.
