Thomas’ passion for dance began when he was at school when his older brother started a Street Dance group in Essex, as the group got bigger he became more interested in different alternative dance styles, especially those that presented him with a fresh challenge. The dance group would later perform and compete locally and nationally in a number of dance competitions.
After leaving school, Thomas attended college for two years, studying a BTEC National Diploma in Public Services. His original career path was to enlist in the British Army as a Royal Engineer - a million miles away from his career today.
Thomas continued his education at University studying Sports Coaching and Physical Education. His passion for dance continued and he developed links within the dance community joining the “British BBoy Association”.
The association was set up to help communities in running dance events and charity work to support the dance community. This experience assisted Thomas in gaining a deeper understanding of how to run children’s events and furthered his education in delivering physical education to a range of ages.
After finishing university, he spent a year delivering dance in a number of studios, dance schools and in his local primary schools. At this point it became clear to Thomas that his true passion is working with children.
“Last year I joined Premier Sport as an Activity Professional delivering dance, this accelerated my personal knowledge within this sector. Premier Sport’s high level training and support has seen my style of delivery, professionalism and confidence develop enormously.
Since then, my passion for dance and desire to run my own business was perfect for the opportunity that Premier Performing Arts presented me. I’m delivering dance and other performing arts into schools which is a dream come true.
The feedback I have received to date has been very positive and I am looking forward to working alongside schools delivering dance and performing arts to thousands of children."
