What does dance mean to you? 
Dance is everything to me, it's my form of expression for my life, I'm not very good with words sometimes and I struggle to express through words so I use dance to express all of my internal thoughts, emotions and feelings. Dance brings so many people together and connects all kinds of people and brings happiness and confidence to all ages and abilities. Dance is my tool to communicate, to share and to bring people together.

How old where you when you started dancing? 
I was 16 when I started taking dance seriously.

Who inspires you/ who’s your role model? 
 I find inspiration from every person I meet, I find there is something to learn and take from each encounter with another person. I am also inspired by different cultures and music. I don't really have a role model because I feel everyone is so unique so I just strive to be the best person I can be and learn from others how to always be better in different ways.

What do you enjoy about teaching? 
Teaching to me is so enjoyable because it's a process, it's a way to share with other people and to help build confidence and awareness in others. My favourite moments are when I see somebody struggling with confidence or insecurities and through dance they are able to overcome that and to then take that confidence and apply it to the rest of their life.  

What do you think makes a good dance teacher? 
I think a good dance teacher is somebody who can create a space where others feel safe to be themselves. Somebody who is patient and understands that everyone learns differently and being able to notice this and know how to teach in different ways that everybody will understand. A good dance teacher will lift you up, believe in you and push you to be better. 

What advice would you give to someone who is trying dance for the first time?
I would say don't be scared. Going into a room with a number of people that might be strangers and doing something that you don't yet feel comfortable or confident with can be scary. But don't let that hold you back, dance doesn't judge and dance is for everyone. It may take time to get better at certain things within dance, but don't let it put you off if there are certain things that are difficult because you will progress over time and get more comfortable.
