What they say

Jon Goddard“Having worked with Lucy for a large portion of my career, I have always found her positivity, immense drive and passion for working with young people to be deeply inspiring. She is the first person I would recommend as a dance and project leader. In future years a whole generation of modern dancers will have Lucy’s skills and innovation to thank for developing and making their formative years so diverse and exciting. I greatly look forward to seeing what Lucy creates and achieves in the future.”

As a mentor she gave me the confidence to embrace my role as teaching assistant and provided me with opportunities to help me progress and develop my skills as a rehearsal director and teacher.”

joelod_mini“Finding your feet in the dance industry at such a young age is a very hard task. A few years ago I had to ask myself some important questions in relation to my future career. Lucy was one of the key figures in helping me make those decisions, offering an incredible amount of understanding and consideration. The advice she gave me has stuck with me since and has helped me not only as a dancer but as a person too. She gave each student the same concern, and went far beyond her job expectations. This selflessness and effort never once compromised her energy or buoyancy.”
