Michelle has achieved the highest performance standards in all forms of dance, including Ballet, Tap, Latin American, Irish & Highland Dancing styles. As a fully trained performer, competitor, choreographer and teacher she specialises in the field of Highland and Scottish National Dancing.

As a regular competitor on the World highland dancing circuit, Michelle has won numerous awards and prizes. Currently the Adult Ulster Highland Dancing Champion, Michelle has established herself as the foremost dancer in Ireland. Lifting medals and trophies at The United Kingdom, European, North American, and World Championships have all been highlights. Being adept at Highland, Scottish National and Irish dancing, Michelle not only competes but also performs on the international and national stage.
She has performed in tattoos, festivals, concert halls and stadiums in front of thousands of people throughout Europe. Michelle is now accustomed to travelling all around the World for the love of Highland Dancing.

As a teacher Michelle encourages boys and girls, of all ages and abilities, to keep fit, enjoy dancing & learn more about the history and culture of the movements, costumes and traditions.

Michelle is looking forward to creating innovative dance elements that will fuse both Scottish & Irish Traditions in The 2015 Belfast Tattoo Dance Team. In previous years the team has featured Champion Dancers from across Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland & Scotland.
