"I am a dancer/ choreographer/ director, originally from the UK but in New York since 2004. I joined this program because I liked the vibe! And, I am interested in making art more accessible to all youth, and using my experience to inspire a next generation of creatives and socially aware global citizens."
Most Memorable TAP Moment:
"I have loved having the opportunity to deep dive into curriculum and lesson planning with Jay and the guest teaching artists. Hearing from these guest speakers about their experiences in classrooms, and attending classes myself, has been extremely inspiring and eye opening."
