Repertoire includes

Favourite roles to perform

  • Simon Dow’s The Call was about reaching for something greater than yourself. Following this spiritual journey to Ravel’s Bolero was an out of body experience.
  • Lead Pas de Deux in Stephen Baynes’ A Singular Sequence
  • Stravinsky’s Dithyramb
  • Lead clown in Ray Powell’s One in Five. This was probably the most fun I have had on stage, it was great to have a role that demanded a lot of personality.

Dance inspiration

I am enthralled by works of great artistic sensitivity. Through dance and other art forms you can show people that what they feel is normal, and wonderful. For me it is not so much a choice, but a vocation.
