Contemporary Lyrical Choreographer
I’m so excited that Valentina will be joining me on some of my upcoming masterclasses as a contemporary lyrical choreographer. Valentina is a fabulously talented performer, dancer, choreographer, teacher, and creative artist, having studied at and graduated from London Studio Centre. She also directed and choreographed her show WOMAN at artsdepot in 2017.
Valentina has taught at a number of the most popular dance studios across Europe and now, you gorgeous dancers will be getting the chance to learn from her at my masterclass! From Valentina’s contemporary lyrical class, you can expect high impact and emotion as you’ll explore feeling and passion through high technical ability movement. The class promises to be fun, supportive and full of knowledge that will leave you feeling inspired and empowered. I can’t wait to see you all there!

Favourite musical or film dance number: West Side Story
Earliest dance memory: Being pushed off stage because I wouldn’t stop waving at my Mum who was watching from the audience. To be fair, my performance wasn’t bad!
Song most likely to get you on the dance floor: Let’s Get Loud – Jennifer Lopez
Most embarrassing on-stage moment: When I ripped my bra in a partnering section! I ended up having to improvise the ending so that my partner would hide me and my dignity ?.
Best piece of advice you’ve received: The best achievements in life are the ones you fight for. Stop finding excuses!
