Charlie is currently my mentor at Barbican Theatre and is helping me complete an assistant training programme alongside my university studies. Throughout this programme, Charlie has given exquisite guidance as a mentor as well as the vital assurance that I am on the right path in becoming a valued freelance dance practitioner - all of which is a result of her determination and commitment in helping me through the early stages of my career. 

Thanks to her mentoring, I have already been able to take part in a professional workshop led by NDT2 and build professional relationships with practitioners to benefit my networking and collaborative skills as a community-based artist. 

I am truly grateful to have Charlie as my mentor. As a result of her skillful and intuitive approach to mentoring I am now able to further challenge myself as an artist and push the boundaries of my own expectations and outlook on life. I feel 100% confident in progressing successfully throughout my career and I would recommend Charlie to anyone wanting a mentor.
