Having completed three years conventional Actor training at Guildford School of Acting, I went on to train with Piesn Kozla (Poland), Phillip Zarrilli (Wales), Anna-Helena McLean (UK), Christopher Siversten (UK), Dawid Zakowski (Poland), & Benno Plassmann (Germany). Each of these practitioners deal extensively with the body and specifically look at ensemble, rhythm, musicality, connection and honesty of movement.
