My love for Dance and the arts began at the age of three. I attended Ballet classes at nursery school, throughout primary and high school career, where my passion grew. I trained for 18 years and graduated from the University of Tshwane (B.A Dance Art). With the guidance and private tuition from Elizma Woods School of Ballet, I won various Ballet awards and a bursary to attend the national school of the Arts in Johannesburg for a year.

I have been privileged to have worked with many of the great choreographers and Dance teachers in this country. Coppelia, the full length ballet was produced by the department of Dance while at TUT, where I was part of the Corps de Ballet. I began working professionally in the industry from 2002 & have performed abroad, toured S.A, performed as guest dancer in The 'African Footprint Aspirant' programme, Globe theatre, Gold reef City-Richard Loring Productions just to name a few highlights during my professional dance career.

In 2004 I was employed by Barnyard Theatre Productions as senior choreographer where shows were produced and executed at Gateway- Durban and Cape Town- Roxy Revue Bar, Grand west Casino Theatres.
I spent 2005- mid 2009 in the Eastern Cape, performing in various corporate events for Class Act Productions, singing, acting and dancing.

I was employed as a full time dancer at The Guild Theatre Dance Company. Including, various Valentine shows, 'Joseph & his Technicolor Dreamcoat', 'Showstoppers 2005-2008', 'Girls Just Wanna have Fun' and Grahamstown festival 2006.

In May 2009 it was a great honor to perform in 'The King and I' as a Guest Artist with Paul Buckby and Jinty Deacon at the Guild Theatre, East London. I played 'The Woman in Black' at the Pieter Toerien Theatre at Monte Casino, and Theatre on the bay-Camps Bay in 2009/2010 along with Anton Luitingh and Eckard Rabe.

I achieved my Pilates instructors' accreditation during my training at TUT and recently, Dance for Parkinson's in 2018 through New York's Mark Morris Dance Centre. I have over 15 years teaching experience and have run studios in Cape Town, East London and Jozi. Find me now at The Wanderers Club, Illovo, Sandton.
