Professional Dancer / Dance Teacher / Choreographer
I started to dance when I was 2 years old and I don’t think I’ve ever stopped! I attended an Irish dance school, competing in regular competitions and also a performance school ‘Suzie’s Stage Kids’. I then began training at Ellis School of Dance where I completed Modern Jazz up to Intermediate Grade, Ballet up to Grade 5 and Freestyle Bronze Award.
I joined a youth group at The Dance Studio Leeds where my passion for performing really grew! We performed regularly around Leeds including Fresh, Breeze on Tour and Leeds Fringe. I also took part in 4 school shows at St. Aidan’s High School and received grade A’s in A level Dance and Performing Arts.
I graduated from Kingston University London with a 1st Class BA (Hons) degree in Dance. My favourite modules included dance teaching and leading, dancing cultures, production project and access to dance.
In my 3rd year I was elected president of the dance society and competed in 5 teams - Jazz, Commercial, Hip hop, Latin and Contemporary and I loved it!! Alongside competitions we also organised fund raising events, showcases and I also set up a company called KD Entertainment.
