Born and raised in Teesside, Holly began her dance training age 3 at Jennifer Dunns School of Dance, training in ballet, acrobatics, and modern dance. She then began training in acrobatic gymnastics at age 11 where she would compete at a high national level as part of a women’s trio and women’s pair for 6 years.
At age 16 she began her contemporary dance journey at Dance City in Newcastle where she trained full time for 2 years with choreographers from the Northeast and continuing her training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2020. This is where Holly was able to build her technical training in Cunningham, Limon, Horton and ballet. Also gaining choreographic experience where she was able to work with Company Wayne McGregor, Akeim Toussant Buck and Rahel Vonmoos. She also created her own choreographies which were selected to be shown in the Bonnie Bird Theatre as part of her degree. Holly hopes to continue her training with Emergence to grow as a professional dancer.
Outside of dancing, Holly is interested in street wear fashion, film and electronic music and hopes to look further into how she can integrate dance into all these.
