What are your top 3 favourite Cheerleading Company hen parties in London?
- Single Ladies - One word. Amazing.
- Cheerleading - I love teaching the personalised cheer as you get to make it special for the bride. It’s something they will remember and often they decide to do it at the wedding!
- Dirty Dancing - a classic that never gets old.
What is it like teaching dance hen parties?
I have been teaching for The Cheerleading Company for over two years now and every party I have done has been really rewarding and a lot of fun! It feels great to be involved in such a special day for the bride and to be able to contribute into making her wedding celebrations unforgettable.
Also compared to other teaching work I do for kids in schools etc, teaching hen parties is more about the fun factor rather than technique and discipline. This makes the experience much more laidback and enjoyable! No hen party has been the same but the one thing they have in common is that I always leave with a big smile on my face!
How did you become a dancer?
I have been dancing since a young age after being given a dance class while attending my local gymnastics club. After this taster I caught the dancing bug and found any dance class or workshop possible, mostly in contemporary, ballet and jazz. I then went on to study dance full time which resulted in me gaining a BA (Honours) in Dance from Edinburgh’s Telford College. Since graduating I danced on a cruise ship before returning to Edinburgh to continue to teach and dance professionally. I have now moved down to London where I continue to teach for The Cheerleading Company. I love most styles of dance and will turn my hand to anything but must say my favourite has to be jazz.
Who are your dance inspirations?
Studying dance has opened my eyes to so many different styles, genres and people which have all inspired me in some way or another. Alvin Ailey is a contemporary company that takes my breathe away every time I see them as their dancers put so much passion and emotion into their performance. They inspire me to be a better dancer. On a less serious note, Beyonce is totally amazing! All her performances are different and she pushes the boundaries with her choreography. Not to mention how hot she looks while doing it! I get really excited every time I see a booking for the Single Ladies party so I can channel my inner Beyonce once more!
