Laura

Dance Practitioner

I started dancing at an early age, training in Ballet, Tap and Modern.  Having sustained a Spinal Cord Injury aged 16, I continued with my dance training using a wheelchair and became a professional dancer in 2001. Since then I have accumulated a wealth of experience, working with numerous choreographers and performing globally in both traditional and non-traditional settings. 

I am passionate about bringing quality dance experience to those who would not normally be able to access it. My inclusive teaching approach incorporates both skill development and fun. I choreographed the Heritage Flame Ceremony, at Stoke Mandeville for the Rio 2016 Paralympics, and I assisted with the choreography and teaching 3,500 volunteers as Dance Captain for the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony.
