Going solo

After four incredible seasons with Scottish Dance Theatre, I have decided to leave the company next June in order to establish myself as an independent dance artist.
It's not been an easy decision, but after eleven years working as a dancer in repertory companies across Europe, I think it is the right time to move on and step up to new challenges. As an independent artist, I would like to focus on my own choreographic practice, as well as working as a freelance dancer and teacher.
Summer is already looking busy with very excting engagements, including a new comission for Project Y in Glasgow and the oportunity to work as a dancer with Ben Duke. I will be performing with his company Lost Dog at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the programme could not be more exciting: It Needs Horses won the 2011 Place Prize edition, the most prestigious choreographic competition in the UK.
I am thrilled to start this new chapter of my professional career, and I am looking forward to meet and collaborate with artists and organisations in Scotland, the UK and beyond. My head is full of ideas and projects waiting to be realised... I can't wait! More about it soon...
