Natasha (Acrobatics)
Ever since I remember I’ve had a burning passion inside to perform, starting dancing from the age of 3 performing was what I lived for! Starting at a local dance school, subjects including Acrobatics, Modern, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical and Greek. I performed in shows all over London and competitions which just made me realise more the love I had for dance.  I then went onto train at Creative Academy learning new dance styles and most importantly about myself as a dancer implying all corrections and feedback to make myself become a stronger dancer as I knew the dance industry is tough! Currently just finished a 6 months contract at Disney Land Paris as a Character & Parade performer which was just amazing in every way!
