Having been kicked out of ballet school at the age of 6 because I had “too much energy and danced like a baby elephant” I taught myself to dance and have been performing on stages across the world ever since. I think I am living proof that unfortunately many ‘teachers’ haven’t got a clue what they’re talking about.
For almost 9yrs of my life I toured with the space rock legends Hawkwind and met my best friend and performance partner Laura McGee. Hawkwind have always been famous for their elaborate stage shows full of warriors, Goddesses and wizards and psychedelic warlords. It was a privilege to be part of the family and add to their legacy, I danced all over the world with them and got to immerse myself in a crazy fantasy world on a regular basis. Just like any family ours was hilariously dysfunctional and life on the road was as colourful as it was turbulent.
