I came to the UK as a professional Contemporary dancer having performed extensively throughout Europe, Asia and New Zealand. Strength, skill and endurance have always been the foundation of my physical function. Growing up in New Zealand I was dedicated to maintaining an active lifestyle. I have regularly trained in swimming, athletics and have competed in multiple equestrian disciplines.
Throughout my dance training and career, I was always fascinated by the challenges and the amazing physicality that the human body can endure. The process of rehearsal, refining and performing were highly gratifying. As a dancer, injuries were a given; busted knees and shoulders, pulled muscles to name a few. I came to realise that injuries were the body’s way of shouting and screaming “something isn’t right!”. I used those injuries to better understand how I was moving, correct it and subsequently grow stronger.
