As a Mancunian herself, Georgia grew up in Kearsley where she began dancing at the age of 3. Georgia started off with RAD ballet, ISTD modern and tap as well as following a musical theatre and commercial path at Dawn Dawson’s Academy in Bolton. She then successfully auditioned for The Lowry CAT Scheme where she primarily trained in contemporary dance for 3 years before advancing her skill set even further at London Contemporary Dance School, The Place. She has recently graduated from LCDS, completing her studies, obtaining a First-Class BA (Hons) degree. As part of her undergraduate programme, she has had the pleasure of collaborating and working with various choreographers such as Shobana Jeyasingh, Seke Chimutengwende, Jason Mabana and Fubunation.
Alongside completing her degree, she pushed herself to learn new disciplines in the hip hop world with Avant Garde Dance Company. From working with Tony Adigun and Emma Stansall in the second cohort of AG2, she is constantly upskilling her ability and can’t wait to join Emergence to increase her personal development and artistry further. During her year with AG2 she worked closely with Viki Cercek and Dani Harris-Walters to produce a digital choreographic video leading to performing in Dani’s commissioned choreography of ‘Kurt Feelings’ at the Rose Theatre in Kingston upon Thames. As she has dived into the hip hop scene Georgia is also training in Krump and has joined the Ruffian Fam.
Outside of Georgia’s training she worked with New Adventures and performed in the premiere of Matthew Bourne’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ as part of the young cast at The Lowry on The Lyric Theatre stage and also had the opportunity to work with Shobana Jeyasingh for ‘Counterpoint’.
During her year with Emergence she will also be extending her teaching skills further delivering classes for as young as 6 months to 5-year-olds working for the Babyballet Worsley, Walkden and Tyldesley franchise.
Aside from dance, Georgia has always been very active since a young age and continues to play tennis and go skiing with her family every so often.
