Dazzle Team 2019


I’m Carys, I’m 22 years old and I’ve just graduated in Psychology from the University of Sheffield. I currently work in a vegetarian deli, baking cakes. I’ve danced since I was 3 years old. I have achieved Gold standard in Latin American and Ballroom dancing; and Grade 6 in Tap, Modern, and Ballet. I have also competed in a contemporary dance troupe for the county. During my time at university, I coached dance and gymnastics in primary schools. Now I recreationally attend Strut and Style and Reggaeton classes. I have been a Dazzle assistant for 7 years, and I am excited to teach even more boys and girls some funky, fun routines!
