“I am a freelance teacher, dancer and choreographer based in Auckland. I trained at The New Zealand School of Dance, first as a ballet major for my first two years and swapped to contemporary for my last year. I love making dance works, teaching and dancing. I am very excited to become part of the teaching team at The Renaissance School of Dance this year.”
