    Returning back to Sheffield, she knew more so that the city needed something fresh and current in terms of dance which led Suzy to create INK.

     

    Since then, INK has thrived and continues to provide a positive environment for many dancers to learn, grow and perform.

Her performance credits include Rita ora/The X-Factor Final, UK Stand Up, FearFest, Channel 4 Gok Live and work with Oliver Brian Productions, Blackbox Productions, as well as other theatre companies and agencies.

     

    Suzy also gained mentorship with Beyonce's choreographer, Dana Foglia on her DFD program, and trained intensively with Dana and and her company.

     

    Her aims now are to continue growing the INK empire to work and inspire young people to do what they love. Suzy is also continuing to develop herself as a dancer, choreographer and a creative artist.
