After receiving a Certificate in Education from Manchester Metropolitan University, Cathy graduated as a mature student from the University of Manchester with a degree in Social Anthropology. Her teaching experience, however, predates both these qualifications, and she has been teaching in various forms since 2002.
A seasoned hula-hoop specialist, Cathy has been teaching hoop performance since 2010 and her students have gone on to perform as soloists and in troupes throughout the world. As well as teaching, Cathy herself has many festival, TV and stage performances under her belt, and has appeared on-stage with Black Grape, on Strictly Come Dancing as a hoop teacher and can be found on the BBC Sport website’s Make Your Move Hula Challenge.
Cathy has years of event experience off-stage too and has a broad understanding and appreciation of the industry and what it means to make something work.
