As a child, I always loved to make people laugh, acting the fool, doing impressions and generally being a bit of a silly billy! It was clear there was some sort of entertainer in me from an early age! At the age of five, I began to learn Irish dancing and before long was competing it both solo and team dance competitions. Over the years my team and I had became multiple All Ireland, Great Britain, All American and World Champions, which was an amazing experience.
So, I had spent a lot of time on stage dancing but had never ventured into acting or voice performance which is why the Drama & Performance degree course caught my eye, I would be able to discover and develop other areas of performance at a high level. It did not disappoint and I had an amazing three years at Wolverhampton University learning and practising many genres of performance. I graduated from there in 2009, which is where my role as a children's entertainer began.
Since 2009 I have had the honour of entertaining children on their special day all over the West Midlands and further still. Having two children of my own, I understand the importance of that special day, the build up to it and the wishes we make as parents that the birthday is as special as our children. But it's not just children's birthdays that we attend, we have entertained children at parents parties, so the parents don't have to worry about doing it themselves! We have entertained at Christenings, weddings, fun days, open days, in shopping centres and even in a church!
It has been a great journey setting up and trading as Hi 5, it's been great getting my name out there and I have had a lot of work from the guests at parties I have entertained at. We thank you for your lovely feedback and look forward to coming to a party near you soon!
Hi 5 for now!
