Defiance in the face of Brexit at Sadlers Wells

Maybe in years to come, people will ask me what I was doing on the night the UK left the EU. I’ll be proud to say that I was at the Sadlers Wells theatre in London, embracing a diverse programme of dance featuring dancers and styles from all around the world. As the last few…

Review of BalletBoyz Them/Us

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend the BalletBoyz West End debut with the double bill Them/Us at the Vaudeville Theatre.

2018

This year has been one of the best and busiest of my life! However I’ve just had so much going on that I haven’t been able to devote as much time as usual to this blog. That’s okay- sometimes life happens, and although sharing my journey is important to me, life is primarily for living!…

Later that week, I attended a…

As mentioned in my round-up of 2017 dance performances, New Adventures’ interpretation of The Red Shoes was one of my absolute favourite performances of last…

2017 Round-Up: Dance Performances

This year, I have been lucky enough to go and see more dance performances than ever before, thanks mostly to the generosity of Sadler’s Wells and The Movement. Being a Social Mover has been an amazing opportunity, because watching live dance is really the best way to stay inspired and informed about your art form…

Dare to Dance: University Edition

  As you may know, in September I started studying for a degree in Dance at the University of Roehampton. It’s kept me super busy, so I have barely had a chance to post anything at all, let alone talk about my university experience. I really want to get back into the swing of things…
