Working alongside several generations of dancers; as a colleague, teacher and artistic director has given me a deep understanding of the ever-changing circumstances that come with working in the performing arts.

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR CAREER

To enjoy a thriving dancing career requires nous, confidence, motivation and resilience. I offer coaching support for dancers at different stages in their working lives. Coaching will help you take charge of you destiny more effectively and meet challenges with more confidence, which will improve your chances of a satisfying career. 

 

Common practical issues every dancer confronts will be addressed, including:

 

  • Preparing for auditions

 

  • Strategies for maximising professional success when employed in a dance company

 

  • Handling disappointments, building resilience and maintaining confidence

 

  • Establishing healthy professional relationships with colleagues and artistic management

 

  • Coping with stress and maintaining motivation during especially demanding times

 

  • How to prepare for career change at the end of an active dancing career

 

However, every individual will face his or her own specific challenges and your coaching will focus on that which is important to you. The benefit of having a personal coach is that he or she is un-connected to your school or company (or your parents). A coach is responsible only to you and totally objective and importantly; everything spoken during coaching is utterly confidential.

PARENTS CONSULTATIONS

As a unique service I offer free one-off consultations for parents of dance students. It is an opportunity for a parent who may be unfamiliar with the world of dance to discuss with an experienced dance professional how to best support a son or daughter in their pursuit of a fulfilling career in the performing arts.
