How I Can Help You

As a former international ballet dancer and Artistic Director, with decades of experience of working alongside several generations of artists, I have a deep understanding of the ever-changing circumstances that come with working in the performing arts. To enjoy a thriving career in all areas of dance requires nous, confidence, motivation and resilience. I enable artists at different stages in their working lives to take charge of their destiny more effectively, meet challenges with more confidence and improve their chances of a satisfying career.

Career planning – a clear vision of where you are heading, both during and after and active dancing career, will ensure better results and more fulfilment in all areas of work and at all stages of a professional career. I help my clients explore what they want and discover what they need to do to get there.

Career development – a dance professional will be used to commitment and lifelong learning but limiting beliefs and lack of confidence often stifle progress. A positive mindset and ability for self-management is essential. I help my people designing strong principles and develop assertiveness to handle a high-pressure environment together with leadership skills, because ability to lead oneself and others lay at the core of all career progression.

Career transitions – throughout an active career a dance professional will experience transitions and personal change when conflicting priorities and feelings of separation can be challenging. By providing my clients with a safe space and opportunities to have constructive conversations exploring their situation, knowing they won’t be judged, they find clear directions and a renewed sense of purpose.

Areas to work on might include:

  • Job seeking and preparing for auditions

  • Strengthening resilience, building confidence and maintaining motivation during demanding times

  • Coping with stress under pressure in a high performance environment

  • Maintaining healthy relationships with colleagues and management

  • Preparedness to seize opportunities to maximise career development 

  • Managing career transition and dealing with loss at the end of an active performance career
