I am a certified teacher with the British Academy of Dramatic Combat (BADC) and Associate Fight Instructor with Rc-Annie Ltd.
Prior to my teacher training and alongside acting I was an applied drama workshop facilitator for 12 years. I worked with all ages and backgrounds of participants and specialised in working with offenders, using drama as a creative and explorative outlet. This extensive experience of drama facilitation enhances my work with theatrical violence as I am experienced at devising bespoke courses and workshops to meet a variety of requirements.
Rc-Annie Ltd: As an Associate Fight Instructor I undertake regular, ongoing teaching with Rc-Annie. This includes BADC Certifications as well specialist workshops and drop in sessions.
My role also includes creating bespoke workshops for theatres, events, universities, companies, schools and youth groups. Recent clients include York Theatre Royal, Geese Theatre Company, St Georges International School Luxembourg, The Wellcome Collection, Queen Mary University of London.
Royal Central School of Speech and Drama: I teach the BADC Foundation course for the Summer School and have also taught BADC Standard Level for the MA Contemporary Acting. Fight Direction for the MA Classical & Contemporary Acting includes Boudica, Bones and Cymbeline.
Identity School of Acting: I created a unique combat course exploring the fundamentals of unarmed fighting which I teach to students at Identity.
University of the Creative Arts: I am the resident stage combat tutor on the BA Acting and Performance Degree at UCA, devising a programme that complements a module focusing on violence and revenge in classical texts.
