After a couple of years of competitive sailing, I started my movement journey with ballet at the age of 18 in Singapore. I was then immersed in a wide range of dance styles, including aerial disciplines during a one year 'Developing Artiste Program' with Jitterbugs Swingapore, proceeding to train with them as an instructor, developing a teaching curriculum and performing at venues across the city before making London my home.

I have an interdisciplinary approach to aerial, developing a personal sense of movement through incorporating complementary practices, from yoga and barre, to a wide range of dance styles, and other functional/alignment-based training. I focus on musicality, transitions, choreography and flow to develop my own signature style on the apparatus.

My performing credits include most notably working with Upswing Aerial for their Circus Flavours shows across London, Bassline Circus for their On Air show for Bristol Pride, performing with Tsar B in front of a 10,000 strong audience at the Ancienne Belgique, Belgium, the Postcards Festival for Jackson's Lane, the Brownie Club Cabaret at the Rounhouse, and other London cabaret venues such as Cafe de Paris, the Aeronaut and London Cabaret Club.

As a instructor, I have current regular classes at Flying Fantastic and Aerialand and have taught intensive workshops across the globe. I also have 1:1 sessions where I mentor and frequently work with professional/pre-professional aerialists, dancers, actors and artists, looking to incorporate choreography and flow into their own aerial performances as well.
