A little of what I've been up to
Still writing my history!
I pretty much started choreographing from the same time I started dancing as a child. From my favourite pop dance groups as a kid learning the dances, I then started choreographing my own ideas to my fav tracks. So I guess it's not so unsurprising as I started freestyling in the clubs so young I then also ended up in a troupe where I did most of the choreography and when the London garage scene hit the mainstream we ended up doing the music videos, top of the pops and numerous live music award events
I've acquired extensive experience in both performing and producing over the years from working right across many aspects of the entertainment industry. From my early days as a resident dancer at the Ministry of Sound when I was made head dancer and performance organiser scheduling all the dancers for the in-house entertainment on the weekends. I brought in my love for the circus arts performing aerial acts, fire and stilts and creating special nights with circus skills with the other performers to broaden the variety of entertainment we performed for at the world-renowned packed out night club every weekend. Then when the Ministry of Sound teamed up with World Dance organisers to bring some of the biggest music club nights to the Millennium Dome for 3 New Years Eve parties running and a special summer outdoor festival at Knebworth with a live concert performance from Jamarique, I not only got to dance on some huge stages in front of crowds of thousands to the biggest superstar DJs of the times, but I got an invaluable experience of working with large teams from auditioning, programing and organizing 30 dancers and 10 circus artists at a time over 4 huge live events. Working with the ministry of sound on tours abroad, London inhouse nights and special events for over 5 years unexpectedly broadened my knowledge and set me up for future opportunities
I went on to create my own ideas with both dance and circus skilled acts, for theatre and numerous live events and at the time when the corporate events industry was booming I got to produce and choreograph many various themed shows and build up a beautiful array of themed costumes.
I then went on to create complete entertainment concepts for 3 different venues I worked with for over 5 years performing alongside and booking over 90 performance artists over those years. Producing and performing both event and inhouse entertainment, including a dining concept for 2 stunning London restaurant & event venues and, working closely with my rigging partners, permanent aerial rigs were installed creating heights of visual magic for the special events and for the diners. With a handpicked team of incredibly talented artists, including aerialists, acrobats, contortionists, capoeiristas, dancers, hand-balancers, stiltwalkers, fire/flow performers, magicians and many more highly skilled professionals, we entertained at hundreds of events, inhouse nights and over 7 Christmas event seasons from 2012 to 2019 and brought the magic of the circus to London, Shoreditch and Camden Town.
With many years of experience and a huge collection of costumes, themes and equipment I am now focusing all my energy back on what inspires me the most and creating all my own work once more, choreographing new shows, making new costumes, and designing new complete entertainment concepts and with my own portable aerial rig I can bring my fusion of dance and circus shows of solo and duo acts or complete choreographed group shows right to your door!
