I worked as a professional dancer for leading contemporary dance companies as a choreographer and movement director for theater, alongside which I have led workshops and training for arts organisations (such as Random Dance Company) and in schools. The focus of my teaching is on "Learning to Move, and Moving to Learn" also to have a creative approach to how one can use movement as a teaching tool across the curriculum. I value that a child who is physically literate is confident and motivated, with the ability to gain understanding in all subject areas. Movement is seminal to the way we think and feel, provides an embodied approach that celebrates the diversity of any classroom. I am confident using movement to support numeracy and literacy skills in the classroom, working as a Creative Practitioner for the Arts Council of Wales' Creative Lead Schools programme.
