I am the founder and the main teacher of The Showgirl Academy.

With a varied dance background I started dancing at an early stage studying tap and jazz. I then fell in love with hip-hop and began teaching it, which lead to the opening of my Bristol based urban dance school Pumped in 2008.

I trained with The Ministry of Burlesque in 2009 and since then have been teaching cabaret styles, my favourite being Charleston with its witty humour and quirky steps. I also manage and choreograph for The Flaming Feathers, the academy’s professional performance troupe.

I have worked for various colleges, schools, events, and clubs throughout the UK and this has given me the knowledge and skill to make me a professional and passionate dancer and teacher.

I always bring humour and fun into my classes whilst teaching at the highest possible standard.
