Phoebe is a contemporary dance artist, choreographer and teacher.
Phoebe’s dance foundations were built from her time in the Laban CAT scheme and with Shoreditch Youth Dance Company. Phoebe then went on to graduate from Trinity Laban in 2014 with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance and a Post Graduate Diploma in Performance Studies from London Contemporary Dance School.
In her early career Phoebe toured extensively with Richard Alston Dance Company, working with with Richard Alston himself, Martin Lawrence and Ajani Johnson-Goffe, performing on iconic stages such as Sadler’s wells, London, and touring to New Jersey & New York, America.
Phoebe has performed both repertory and new works across UK, Sweden, Canada, America and Australia. She is passionate about experimenting in dance, and has performed in developments with such artists as Dane Hurst, Lea Anderson & Lukas Mcfarlane. During 2015 Phoebe travelled to Australia where she danced in works for Zoe Marsh and Locreado dance company.
On return to London in 2016, Phoebe joined the original cast of Bat Out Of Hell the musical. During this time she extensively defined her role as the Featured female dancer (Bessamey) and Assistant dance captain, assisting choreographer Emma Portner to create what is now a world touring musical. During her time in BOOH Phoebe made her musical theatre debut in Manchester and Toronto, and her West End debut at The Coliseum (ENO), London.
After leaving BOOH in 2018, Phoebe moved to Indonesia to train as a Yoga teacher & Surf Instructor. With these skills, Phoebe travelled the world teaching and now bases herself in New Zealand. As well as teaching Surf and Yoga, Phoebe has returned to dance and teaches regular classes at Whangarei Academy of Dance and Performing Arts. Phoebe is passionate about combining her different skills to help other dancers and performers feel their best within their bodies- physically and mentally.
Alongside her career as a performer, Phoebe has always loved teaching and sharing her love for movement with younger generations of dancers. Phoebe specialises in teaching Contemporary dance classes. Phoebe’s interests lie with teaching contemporary floor work and use of dynamics within movement. She feels her training in these two areas were the skills she set herself apart with whilst being a performer. Phoebe encourages all of her students to explore their dynamic choices, in order to find their unique voice within dance.
Phoebe has taught in many different countries and schools. Whilst touring with Richard Alston dance company in 2014, Phoebe travelled to numerous schools around the UK teaching GCSE and A level students repertoire from the company’s shows. She regularly returned to her home town (Worthing) to offer summer workshops and intensives, and whenever she found time alongside being on stage, she covered for other contemporary teachers at dance studios such as Pineapple dance studios. Whilst travelling in 2015, Phoebe had the opportunity to teach and assist at various workshops in Australia such as One dance collective and HDI Australia. Whilst performing in the original west end cast of Bat Out Of Hell, Phoebe taught workshops based around the movement and character she built as Featured Dancer in the show.
Phoebe believes it’s important to continue giving back to dance as a teacher as she wouldn’t be the dancer she is today without the inspiring teachers she had whilst growing up and training. Phoebe is now based in New Zealand and teaches weekly classes of Contemporary, Ballet and Commercial Jazz for students at Whangarei Academy of Dance and Performing Arts. As well as teaching her students, she regularly choreographs group and solo pieces for competitions and shows. She is so inspired by the talent young dancers have today and holds strong in her belief of continuing to teach both old and new contemporary techniques. Phoebe hopes she inspires her students to become virtuosic as performers, and that no dream is unachievable if you work hard at your craft.
