I have taught drama, dance and performing arts to children, young people and adults since 2001. I have a strong belief in the ability of performing arts to build confidence, create social awareness, increase our powers of communication and contribute to happy, healthy lifestyles. My teaching style puts an emphasis on the disciplines required to master the techniques of drama and performance, whilst maintaining that the process should be fun, challenging, dynamic and inquisitive.
I teach both group and private lessons, and run one-off workshops, regular classes and short courses.
Some of the organisations that I currently work with or for are listed below, as are some of the organisations that I have worked with during the past ten years.
