About me
I'm a creative spirit that enthusiastically supports other creatives in their art. I particularly love providing the space (physical and energetic) to encourage it. All beings should revel in their creative expressions. A coach, consultant, cheerleader, and provocateur. Additionally, I advocate for the arts in the community, serving as a bridge between artists and their little slice of the universe. It is important that ALL people have access to the arts regardless of socially or culturally constructed barriers. Art is universal. Diversity is strength & beauty. -----Nurturing creativity. Rooting for the underdogs. Stirring ALL the 'pots'. -----

  • Ethnographic research : London's Hip-hop/Street Styles Dance Battle Scene
    Ethnographic research : London's Hip-hop/Street Styles Dance Battle SceneFor my final year of MFA studies in Dance Science, I will be conducting a qualitative research project . The study will observe the underground London dance battle scene. In a more anthropological approach, the scene of hip-hop and street styles will be considered a culture. As such, the norms and values relevant to the scene will be acknowledged, dissected, and analysed. A dissemination of the findings will be showcased via a written submission but also through a creative output to invest back
  • Open Your Mind London- Experimental Dance Battle
    Open Your Mind London- Experimental Dance BattleOpenYour Mind is a dance battle franchise that began in Russia 5 years ago. As a event that promotes creativity, connection, and artistry, the event will undoubtedly foster a culture of open innovation for dancers, movers, and artists. In partnering with Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the first London iteration of Open Your Mind will debut in the diverse city of London in October 2019.
