I trained at the Royal Ballet School in London and began my career as a classical ballet dancer in Ballet Clásico de Zaragoza, Spain and continued on to Maggiodanza in

Florence, Italy. Rediscovering contemporary dance with a passion I then devoted myself to Graham and Cunningham techniques at London Contemporary Dance School. A year which shaped the rest of my life. Leaving LCDS I worked with Mark Baldwin Dance Company then joined Ballet Cullberg in Sweden where I stayed for eight years dancing incredible works by Mats Ek, Carolyn Carlson, Ohad Naharan, Johan Inger and Philippe Blanchard. After the birth of my second child I moved to France and became certified in the Pilates method by Alan Herdman Pilates and also obtained my French teaching diploma in classical ballet. I returned to professional dance 3 years later.

For the last 12 years I have had the privilege to work closely with Eric Oberdorff director of La Compagnie Humaine, Nice, France.

In 2019 I joined the Dance On Ensemble based in Berlin, Germany creating works with fantastic artists such as Rabih Mroué, Mathilde Monnier and  Ivana Muller as well as dancing unseen works from the great Merce Cunningham and Lucinda Childs.


                              The adventure continues!
