My name is Georgina – Georgie/George are my nicknames – and I am a journalist, writer and dance/theatre reviewer.
I am a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with post-graduate industry qualifications in journalism from the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
I have experience of writing news, features, reviews and supplements, as well as interviews, web stories and advertorials for the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper.
When I am not writing, I dance. Dance has always been a huge part of my life – I have studied classical ballet since I was a toddler and have also trained in modern, jazz and contemporary dance. I performed on stage in professional and amateur productions throughout my training and am passionate about advocating theatre and the arts.
As I have been a writer and a dancer for as long as I can remember, reviewing dance and theatre productions is the perfect outlet for my skills – and also puts my analytical personality to best use.
I was recognised as an ’emerging dance writer’ at Cloud Dance Festival: Showtime (London, November 2013) and seize any and all opportunities to watch and review dance.
In May 2014 I was selected as an English National Ballet ‘Dance is the Word’ writer.
At university I studied Sociology – social affairs, psychology and behaviour fascinate me – and I spent a very happy three years immersed in academic life at the LSE. My dance background influenced the focus for my dissertation: ‘Gender representation in practice and performance of classical ballet – reflection and contradiction of conventional gender norms’.
