Hi My Name is Jess Royle, I am a dance artist who has played some of the biggest stages in the world, including a closing set at Glastonbury and Main stage Wilderness.
On an International gig in Uruguay we performed to 6000 people on a beach in Montevideo – I will never forget the feeling, it keeps my classes high energy and my enthusiasm for teaching in check.
I would never have had these amazing performance opportunities unless I had the best teachers. I have a lot of knowledge I want to pass on.
My training started when I was 4 in Ballet, Tap and Jazz, and I have studied Foundation Dance at LIPA and full time Musical Theatre at Bodyworks Cambridge. Here I had acting and singing lessons along with Contemporary, Commercial, Ballet, Tap and Jazz.
For the last 7 years I have worked in the Performing Arts industry and been a Dance Facilitator.
: to inspire the next generation in performing arts.
: to create youth – led projects.
: to encourage showcasing the pupils in a new experience. Forming friendships and building a dynamic of confident pupils together.
Performing arts has enriched my life. It has taught me confidence in any professional environment, perseverance in a freelance lifestyle and the importance of collaboration. Now, with the help of The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme I am building my own business and sharing my craft.
“In a world where you can be anything, BEE KIND”.
