Angela started dancing at the tender age of 6 years old at the Karen Clarke Theatre School continuing on to vocational college Italia Conti, London from the age of 11. Here she achieved all her major examinations in Imperial Ballet, Tap and Modern as well as learning many other styles of dance and graduated with a Distinction.
Angela went on to have a 12 year professional dance career where she performed around the world on tours, cruises and theatres. (It was fantastic!!) She has had the opportunity to dance and work with some amazing dancers and learn even more styles such as Irish, Burlesque, Aerial, Latin, Ballroom and Adage. On all of these shows Angela was Dance Captain, Lead Dancer and Production Manager and has a wealth of experience in maintaining show teams and high standards in her dancers.
After returning to the U.K Angela choreographed and produced a show with her sister (a professional musician) and raised a large amount of money for the charity Marie Curie. The show team comprised of 15 professional dancers, 3 singers and an 18 piece live Big Band, an achievement she is very proud of.
Angela has passed her DDE in Imperial Ballet, Tap and is currently working towards her DDE Modern and Licentiate in these with the ISTD. She also has her Qualified Teaching and Learning Status (QTLS) which allows her to teach GCSE and A Level dance.
She is first aid trained, fully DBS and a licensed chaperone.
Angela is excited to join the team at LESTA and is very much looking forward to the new role.
