Welcome, hi, hello, my name is Lynette (I’m sorry, there’s no way of doing that intro without sending cringey as hell). I’m 24 and from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.
I spent 2011-2016 in London (cue ‘boo’ing or ‘woop’ing, dependent on your location as you read this). I was there simply because that’s where my training led me. I’ve danced from the age of five and always knew it was what I wanted to do with my life (cringe sentence number two). So, after A-Levels, I up-rooted from my lovely little bubble of Knaresborough and headed down to the Big Smoke. I spent the four best years of my life training at Bird College in Sidcup, with some of the most talented and inspirational teachers and choreographers; before holding my breath and moving even closer to central London, to Hammersmith.
A year after the move, I turned on my heel and came running back to my lovely little town. I’m glad for my time there, I learned a lot about who I was and all that grown up stuff – but London wasn’t for me. So, I made a change. I came back to my home, to my family, to my friends – and most excitingly, a brand new job that I adore.
Now, I’ve joined the teaching faculty at my old dance school, Studio 3 Dance Workshop, Knaresborough and also at Danceology, Wetherby, where I taught on several occasions as a guest teacher during my training. And d’you know what, I couldn’t be happier. Finally I’m able to do what I always wanted to. And finally, work doesn’t feel like work. And that’s the dream, right? It doesn’t feel like a chore. I get paid to do what I love!
I’ve had a million people ask if I’m going to start a blog. I umm’d and ahh’d about it for a long time. And finally decided, let’s just go for it. Why not?
So, here I am. To blog about me, teaching, performance work and opportunities up here. Who knows what’ll happen – let’s just go with the flow.
Happy reading my loves,
