Director
Acro Dance Teacher
Competition and Performance Team Teacher

Since the age of 9 I have taken dance classes in contemporary, jazz, hip hop, acro, ballet and musical theatre.  My specialities became contemporary and acro and since high school I have developed a real love for teaching and choreographing.

In 2018 I moved to Hamilton and began teaching a range of different dance classes at Excite Academy.  I currently teach acro, contemporary, jazz and performance dance and am also in charge of the competition team.

As well as my classes at Excite, I teach in different schools throughout the Waikato area.

In 2020, I started Strive Performing Arts and have been teaching students aged 3 and up since April.

My main goal in opening my own dance company is to spread my love for dance to people of all ages and walks of life.  I want Strive to be a place where everyone can enjoy dancing for the fun of it, no matter what ability or experience they have.  The main thing that makes a good dancer is knowing that there is always more to learn.
