 In 2005, I was employed by DMR School of Ballet as a full time RAD teacher where I taught a wide range of nationalities from aged 3 to adults. In 2010, I was appointed the Vice Principal of the school with responsibilities including - timetabling, scheduling, organising performances, marketing, communicating with parents.
