Meet the Tutor

I have worked in physical theatre, been leading performance companies and teaching contemporary technique for most of my adult life. For Aesop and its Dance to Health programme, I lead fall-prevention classes. I choreograph independently and for DanceEast, and have been leading artists for their district projects in recent years. In 2013 I followed my interest in physiology and anatomy by qualifying as a sports massage therapist.
