Our creative team
Skye here, I have been a tutor with creative spark theatre arts for 3 years now but previous to that I have tutored drama within a few organisations in south Lanarkshire, ran a family dance fitness project and choregraphed and taught in dance schools across central Scotland.
I graduated from Glasgow Kelvin College in 2017 with an HND in musical theatre but I am about to begin working towards my degree in primary education.
I love the opportunities the arts can bring to children and young people from all walks of life and the sense of togetherness you feel as part of such a wonderful group of people like team spark!
I have enjoyed performing in many amateur productions including my favourites children of Eden and Barnum but my dream show would be the amazing calamity Jane!
I gained my degree in in Acting and performance at the University of west of Scotland where I learned how to film and edit Videos, how to direct and devise theatre, how to create community theatre pieces as well as topping up my acting skills! I also have qualifications in childcare which allow me to understand the needs of the young people i work with.
I have worked for many local authorities teaching and directing theatre as well as taking on the roll of Theatre and Arts officer for North Ayrshire council. I have done this for over 10 years now. I also have my own theatre company where we work with adults with additional support needs and create unique community theatre experiences for people.
I love the arts as it is a place where anyone is able to express themselves with no constraints. I also love the chance to help people hear their own voice and realise how important it is.
I love theatre of the absurd plays as they give the audience an opportunity to look at things differently. I also love when you get to view theatre in strange places, like inside a car.
