As a Deaf Dancer Clare has overcame many stigmas and challenges within the dance world. She wants to share her experiences and become an advocate for dancers with disabilities. Clare aims to share and inspire others through movement and creativity. For Clare dance is where she feels most accepted and at home.
Discovering Release Base Technique was a turning point for Clare. After being inspired by other dancers movement in this style, it challenged Clare to explore further. The floor became her forte as she discovered how to get in and out of it through endless movements. Clare also enjoys characterisation and finds herself using her facial expressions to convey the story.
