Demeter, Bombalurina, Cassandra and Tantomile in Andrew Lloyd webber's musicals 'Cats'
Michelle won a scholarship to study at Laine Theatre Arts for three years where she gained her Associate in Cecchetti Ballet with distinction. During her time there, she also won a scholarship to The Royal Ballet Summer School.
After her studies, she immediately gained a place as a Principal Dancer with Union Dance Company and during her time there, toured both nationally and internationally. Michelle then went on to perform in Andrew Lloyd webber's musicals 'Cats' (where she played the roles of Demeter, Bombalurina, Cassandra and Tantomile), and also 'Starlight Express', where she played the role of Buffy.
Michelle was also a Principal Dancer with The Carol Straker Dance Company, and has worked extensively in both Theatre and television productions.
In 2008, Michelle graduated from Middlesex University with a BA Hons in Dance Studies. Upon graduating she continued to demonstrate Martha Graham Technique at Middlesex and went on to work very closely with Robert Cohan and Anne Donnelly on the first drafts of the 'Rescen' projects, documenting Martha Graham Technique for future resources.
Michelle has dedicated many years to teaching Ballet and Contemporary Dance at all levels to various Ballet Schools and Dance institutions, and in addition to her teaching roles, for the last two years has acted as assistant to the Artistic Director on the 'Classically British' Productions for Black History Month. Michelle also teaches on the Tring Park Associates Programme and is absolutely delighted to now be part of the EDA team.

We believe the best way to get a feel for our Academy is to attend one of our Open Days or watch one of our full scale production in our theatre book here www.factoryplayhouse.com. Meet the teachers, look around the building and take classes in all disciplines. We only offer a limited number of open days. Please note: You ALSO get to look around, meet teachers and ask questions on our audition days. You can also book an open day below.
