I have to say, I remember so vividly the productions I used to create in my bedroom when I was as young as 7. From using a lot of blu-tack to stick a large (definitely not big enough) sheet of crêpe paper to the ceiling to act as my backdrop, to, when I got older, and more responsible, spending my pocket-money on a disco light and a smoke machine for my bedroom — Yes, a smoke machine! I just had to be extra careful I didn’t set off the smoke alarm.
I persisted at my local theatre and lost count of the amount of work experience placements I had there. I kept popping up and didn’t leave people alone until I was lucky enough to start working in that same theatre, the Assembly Hall, Tunbridge Wells, where I first went to as a child with my grandparents. Over the years, I feel so proud to have worked on such a range of productions in theatre, television and met an array of pretty incredible people whilst doing so. Of course, I worked a few crazy jobs in-between theatre work too, without realising what an impact they also had on me.
When I was growing up, I never knew what exactly I wanted to do as a career. A lot of people have a solid idea, a single dream, but I had far too many! I love performing, singing and making people laugh (not at my singing), magic shows, technical things, production, direction, art, video editing and just being creative. I was always a bit of an anomaly when it came to the careers advisor at school but I suppose when you’re young and brave, you just get stuck into everything. So, when I realised I could work towards every dream at once, Bravo Productions was born.
It makes my life to create. The feeling that live performance can bring to an audience as it whisks them away from the world for two hours just astounds me. The music we hear can move us and become a soundtrack throughout our lives just from that first time you heard it. The magic a child can witness before their very eyes when they visit a theatre for the very first time.
At Bravo Productions, I like to think that my wacky ideas come from the kid inside me to inspire the next generation, just like how I am inspired by the performers and people I have had in my life.
Keep supporting us and watch out for that inner child of mine!
From a young age, I have always loved being creative. Well… some call it creative — others may call it a little loud and rather wild!
I am a born and bred Tonbridge girl and attended Hillview School for Girls before going to train as a professional contemporary dancer at the London Contemporary Dance School at The Place Theatre.
After graduating with a First Class BA Hons I furthered my training with Jasmin Vardimon’s JV2 in Ashford, before embarking into the industry and performing with companies such as Stopgap Dance Company, Casson and Friends, Made by Katie Green, Jasmin Vardimon, Full House Theatre and Springs Dance Company.
As well as performing, I have a huge love of choreography. I have the pleasure of being the contemporary dance teacher at Associates Dance School and I am also the co-Director and Teacher for This Is Us Youth Dance Company, an inclusive dance company in Tunbridge Wells.
I truly believe that the Arts are for everyone and everyone deserve to access them.
Oliver and I formed Bravo Productions in 2019 to ensure we could work with the community and create opportunities for all.
We love meeting and working with new and wonderful people! We love doing all we can to turn an idea into reality; please get in touch to see if there is anything we can do for you!
We love seeing a blank canvas and knowing that anything is possible — as long as we all believe. Well, I say that… Ollie is usually the one with the vision and I am usually the one to question everything about it and shoot it down for a couple of hours until I realise it’s a cracking idea after all!!
I believe our creative mindset and determination has allowed us to explore many new avenues and we are really excited for the future.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our journey to date, your support means so much to us. We cannot wait to bring LIVE entertainment back to you!
