Professional dancer, dance teacher and choreographer
This month I have decided that this is my time to train hard and work on all areas of fitness particularly my stamina.
With all the performing that I have been doing its made me realise this is an area I want to improve. I also feel the need to work on my stamina as I’m at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival over the summer where I will be performing almost every day!
“The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. Every year thousands of performers take to a multitude of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, musicals, operas, music, exhibitions and events.”áhttp://www.edfringe.com/about-us

So this is where I will be spending my summer, it will also be my first trip to Edinburgh. Alleviate will be performing within a new show called Flash Mob along with other dance acts. The show will be directed by Gary Lloyd, an award winning director and choreographer of the West End hits Thriller Live and Hair. He has also worked with many established artists including Leona Lewis, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Jennifer Hudson and Pink to name a few. I’m really looking forward to working with Gary and the other acts involved, it will be great to have so much talent under one roof!
Heres a little bit of info on what to expect from Flash Mob:
“Dance worlds collide! This dynamic show is packed with energy as stars from your favourite dance reality shows take centre stage. Tommy Franzen, Alleviate, The A-Team Corporation, Brosena and more familiar faces from shows including Got To Dance, So You Think You Can Dance and Move It Like Michael Jackson join forces for the biggest dance fusion Edinburgh has ever seen! Watch as Latin meets lockin’, jazz joins jump jive and contemporary goes Celtic! This feel-good production celebrates the world of dance, building to a spectacular finale that guarantees everyone is on their feet! Directed by Gary Lloyd.”
Alleviate have already started rehearsals for the Fringe. With regular studio sessions, gymnastics training and gym workouts I’m so far really happy and feeling well prepared for August.
We will be performing at the Assembly Hall from the 2nd – 27th August.
