As Head of Rambert’s Learning & Participation department developing and overseeing a portfolio of projects with a nationwide reach of 40,000 to various populations including; schools, recreational dance, hospitals, hospices, theatres, festivals and older adults

My contribution to the development of The Centre for Advanced Training (CAT), London Contemporary Dance School, The Place supported by The Department for Education’s Music and Dance Scheme.
