As immediate Past President of NATD, I have been privileged to represent The National and its members during the last 3 years at many events. To be elected by members to the Council of Management in this position of trust and responsibility within the association is a great honour and very humbling.
Dancing has always been an integral part of my life. I trained with our well-known Theatrical examiner Cynthia Haslam in Derby, whilst taking a degree in English and History (for some career security!) at Nottingham University. Following my passion led to the formation of several large dance schools across the East Midlands.
I was thrilled to be made a Theatrical Examiner in 1989 and then later Senior Examiner for the Ballet Branch. I am delighted to continue working as Quality Assurance Manager for NATD, which is interesting, varied and challenging and I look forward to the next decade for NATD with confidence.
Positions held: Quality Assurance Manager, Child Protection Officer, Head of Theatrical Examinations, GP & F committee member, Council of Management member, Past President (2016-2019), North Midlands Theatrical area chairperson, Sport & Recreation Alliance representative, CDMT representative.
