Biography

My approach is to nurture a love of dance in children. My classes have always been a mix of contemporary and commercial dance, and dance from different cultures. My lessons have always contained a creative component. The aim of the creative component is for children to explore dance as a vehicle for self-expression and self esteem. Over the last eleven years, I have taught in schools as a dance artist, run my own dance, yoga and drama camps, taught private classes to adults and children, and run after school clubs in state schools, private schools, and youth clubs. I have also worked as a freelance choreographer in Theatre, Film and Television. I  have a team of teachers working alongside me. In 2013 I chereographed the Clarks Kids Shoes Campaign.

I completed my diploma in Dance at Lewisham College and then went on to do a Degree in Drama, Film and Television at Bristol University (2.1). I also worked as a professional dancer/actress across theatre, film and television. I am also a qualified children's yoga teacher. 

Once I finished my degree, I returned to London where I worked as a film and dance publicist for four years including the Michael Clark Dance Company. I set up Pitta Patta Dance  in 2002.
