Jasmine works with performers of all-kinds, children and young people, and different communities - to engage and enhance creative bodies.

 

Jasmine's role is to work closely with directors to explore the physical nature of a project, using movement in all its variants to capture the essence of the story: from punchy choreographed sequences to ballroom scenes, from transitions to puppetry and object-work, from ensemble gestures to working 1-1 with actors on character physicality.

As a facilitator, Jasmine believes that engagement with the arts and performance is vital for us to learn and grow as people. Dance and drama can empower and educate. Theatre and opera-making helps build confidence, inspires creativity and fosters empathy. Jasmine is passionate about encouraging young people to find their creative voices through movement and performance.

 

Jasmine prides herself with being an empathetic and inclusive practitioner, always putting those she is working with at the centre of her practice. She strives to create encouraging, safe, exciting and supportive spaces wherever she works.

Jasmine holds an MA in Choreography from Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance. Her studies were kindly supported by the Trinity Laban Dance Scholarship and the Trinity Laban Hardship Fund. She also holds a BA in Drama with First Class Honours from the University of Exeter, having proudly received the Bertie Black Prize for academic achievement.​ Jasmine was part of the 2017/18 cohort for the New Adventures Dance Company programme OVERTURE, a unique and incredible opportunity to develop her community dance practice. 

Jasmine is a qualified Mental Health First Aider for both Adults and Youth.
