Free Mindset Session with every class booked

All I have ever wanted to do is share my love and passion for dance whilst educating young dancers on how o believe in themselves to build their self confidence.

The dance industry needs to do more to support young dancers.

This kind of support wasn’t available for young people when I was training which is exactly why I think it is such a valuable asset to any young dancers training.

It is important to talk about your feelings and fears and to know that you always have someone to talk to.I am here for you.

During your session you can to me about your concerns, fears, struggles and problems all in in a confidential, safe and non judgemental environment.

This doesn’t have to be dance specific, however you can also ask advice on career paths and the industry.

These 30 minute sessions are FREE with any class booked.



Or to book a session.

£15.00 - 30 minutes.

These sessions can be done in person or via Zoom.
