Growing up in Chester, Nyoosha dreamed of taking on ballet, but after four of her older sisters quit, it seemed to her family that it would be a better idea to take on sports instead. However, that didn’t stop her from attending after-school classes by the age of 6.
In 2016 Nyoosha joined the Centre for Advanced Training at The Lowry in Salford where in her first year she was taught by Kristina Alleyne on behalf of Akram Khan Company to produce the end of year production ‘Birth of Destruction’. Nyoosha then fell in love with contemporary dance.
In 2020 Nyoosha moved to Leeds to attend Northern School of Contemporary Dance where she worked with artists such as Vidya Patel, Saju Hari and Alethia Antonia to create collaborative works performed in the Riley Theatre.
Whilst studying in 2022 she worked with Erica Mulkern and Shawn Willis to devise and perform in Festival of the Mind in Sheffield. In 2023 Nyoosha worked with Neus Gil Cortes to create and perform a dance piece for Persian New Year which was aired on Iran International TV.
Outside of dance Nyoosha enjoys bouldering, cooking and spending time with her (very big) family.
