About me: I started teaching ballet when I was 17 teaching various grades from baby ballet to grade 5 RAD. From my dance college, I acquired DDE teaching qualifications in Cecchetti ballet and Modern Theatre Dance as well as Spanish dance teaching qualification from SDS. I taught some evening syllabus and freestyle classes varied from Intermediate to Advanced as well as private lessons.  I worked at Nidd Hall, Warner Leisure Hotels, from February 2014 to March 2016 as a dancer / singer / entertainer / dance captain / team leader. I was in charge of rehearsals and show related issues. I also hosted basic ballroom and Latin dance workshops.  My most recent experience is being a choreographer at a French holiday village. I produced four shows for a team of eighteen members, including a musical show, a rock and roll show and two cabaret shows. I choreographed all the numbers, wrote the scripts, edited the music, decided the costumes, rehearsed with the team, and danced as a main dancer. I also hosted dance and fitness classes daily.
