Got into dancing: I never used to dance until Forbidden, but always been active since a child. I played for a Sunday league football team for 13 years, until I started training with Tottenham Hotspur from 12 years of age!

I was almost 17 before I got into acrobatics. I constantly wanted to push myself harder and knew this would be the perfect work and life for me, so I continued to pursue it as a career.

Having worked hard, I’ve been lucky to have performed all over the world in a variety of countries. Forbidden Nights was the first time ever I’ve got into a strict routine of consistent dancing. It’s challenged me as a person, as I never thought I had rhythm, or been coordinated through dance, but that’s all changed now. I feel super comfortable and I love touring with the family!
