Hi to everyone I know in dance, and to those I don’t but would love to meet!
I have had the most incredible journey over the past few months and I want you guys to be the first to hear about it.
It has been a tough year for all of us but I am always the optimist and want everyone back dancing and doing what we all love best. This nasty virus won’t stop us!
As you know, the dance industry has been struck down by COVID19 and this has been detrimental to the mental health and well-being of anyone who has a passion for dancing. If you are part of the dance community whether it be an industry professional, student, a parent of young dancer, dance school owner or just someone who loves to dance and be free, you will know how dedicated we are and how much spirit the community has. For this reason, after a dark time in my life, I have decided launch a brand new dance movement called Global Motion.
I’m so excited!
On a sad note, I had to close the doors of The London Dance Company, which so difficult as we had just a few months before the virus hit, we won the national championships. Unfortunately, the school isn’t viable at this time given the uncertainty, but with this new movement I hope to be able to give something back to the dance community who have lost so much this year. Us dancers need to put dance back on everyone’s map. It’s what we do!
Everyone talks about adjusting to a new normal and dance and the arts will probably never fully recover nor will the industry ever look the same again. But, with Global Motion we can reclaim our creativity and our passion and throw it directly in the face of adversity. Right between the eyes!
We can take back control of our destiny as dancers and together we will be the new face of dance. We won’t falter, we can be unstoppable and uncompromising in our efforts. Our mindful based movement is here to show the world that although love has been somewhat postponed, laughter hasn’t been cancelled and we ‘us dancers’ will not be shut away, and we will love again.
Movement and specifically dance is imperative for mental health and we believe that in this modern world there is no reason for the dance community to not be together in some way. It is about the freedom to express ourselves and let others enjoy the emotions and skills of our work. Indeed, it is all about being together and doing what we love. Global Motion is a new and different way of getting us back to what we love.
Thank you all for your continued support of my professional dance career, I hope to make you all proud with Global Motion, and I cannot wait to tell you everything that is happening.
Oh my god, it is happening!

Each one is a precious incline
As we step up and dance once again
We realise, just how much dance is an incredible gem.'
