BRINGING CHARACTERS TO LIFE, THROUGH MOVEMENT
Orginally from Cornwall, Charlie first trained with the Cornwall Youth Dance Company in her teens and continued her training at St.Austell College. Moving to Chichester to beneift from their highly ranked University gaining a BA Hons in Dance, Charlie then received one of ten places on the first Post Graduate Dance and Physical Theatre course at Royal Holloway London with the Jasmin Vardimon Company.
She has just finished being a dancer for Director Kay Michael in her piece Sequel, which was performed in The Lab at The Theatre Royal, Plymouth. The piece required dancers to feel comfortable and confident with contact imporvisation.
In the last year, Charlie took on the role of Assistant Director for the Theatre Royal, Plymouth Young Company alongside Lucy Hirst as Director to create Brainstorm which was performed for three nights at The Drum with standing ovations, she performed as a magical and elegant deer for the Effervescent Christmas Grotto and taught the Theatre Hub at Plymouth School of Creative Arts, for the Royal Theatre, in the summer term.
She has also been busy working hard to devise movement workshops for Reception children to inspire their imagination and desire to read. This was all possible by working in partnership with Laura Wall, an author and illustrator to make this happen and we are now creating week long projects for schools overseas.
Charlie is also Artistic Director of off the ground_ a faith based movement company, one of three artists in a theatre collective called By Design and is working on a building block company for primary school children called Heads Up that merges dance and drama together.
