About

Charlie's artistic expression has gone through many phases over the years resulting in a highly developed interdisciplinary personal approach and perspective. Able to play with the line between theatre and dance, Charlie is never content with standing still and is always looking for her next engaging project where movement can be used to unlock potential.

Charlie is a Laban practitioner, a contemporary dancer and physical theatre performer as well as being a qualified youth support worker and teaching assistant. She is a Core Artist at By Design Theatre, a workshop practitioner for With Flying Colours and is Artistic Director of off the ground_.

Charlie completed her Masters in Contemporary Performance Practices in 2020 from Royal Holloway University of London. Previous to this, she completed a PG at the same University with the Jasmin Vardimon Company in Dance and Physical Theatre. This supported her foundational studies at Chichester University where she received a BA Hons in Dance.
