My journey through the world of dance.

19 year old, Australian, World Irish Dancing Champion, Professional dancer, cast member of Heartbeat of Home, Riverdance & Footstorm.

This is my blog to document my life, in the world of dance. 👯

Anonymous said: do you personally think someone who started dance in their mid-teens could eventually reach their dream of getting into riverdance (possibly as the lead)?

I think yes you could definitely get into Riverdance even if you were a late starter. We have people in the show now that didn’t start until as late as 16. You can achieve anything if you put your mind to it!

Anonymous said: Have you ever fell on stage before in heartbeat of home or riverdance in a show ..have any of the girls or is it just the men haha? X

I have fallen plenty of times as have majority of the dancers across both Heartbeat and Riverdance. It just tends to happen when your dancing so often! :)

Anonymous said: Is it very competitive getting into shows like heartbeat or river dance?

It’s competitive because there are so many dancers, and not as many positions in shows. But in saying that, it’s not competitive in a nasty way but simply everybody wants to be the best they can be :)

Honesty hour - get asking ;)

Comp: Worlds
Set Dance: Downfall 76
Fav dance memory: I have a few moments which stand out for me.
1. The moment when I finished my set dance at the worlds and I came off stage to see Mum, Dad, Jonty, Danae, Bianca, Ciara & Stephen all either on the verge of tears or crying - they all knew how tough my journey was to get there. It was so rewarding to see how proud they all were of me, and I felt so supported. I couldn’t have done it without them all.
2. The moment they called out my total score at the worlds and I was surrounded by my family, my family friends, my Aussies & my heartbeaters. Finding out I was going to be standing next to my best friend on the podium, and with my mum beside me just completed that moment.

For all you male Jiggers out there.... #LADjam

Haha she is possibly one of the most hilarious children I know - she’s absolutely mental but I love her to bits. Thanks so much - means a lot. We are extremely proud of their hard work this year and glad they were rewarded for it! :)

At the age of 15 after the toughest years Id ever had, I bought a ring with this quote on it and made it my goal that Id live by it. Since then, my life changed for the better and I am so grateful. You have the power, courage and strength to make your life whatever you wish it to be - so make it a good one! :)
