At the age of 5 years old Claire started dance classes at Knowsley School of Dance under the tuition of Harriet Croft, studying Ballet, Tap, Modern Theatre Dance, Musical Theatre & Jazz Dance. It was in her teenage years she knew she wanted to turn her love for dance into her career.
At the age of 16 Claire embarked on a 3 year Dance Diploma course at Merseyside Dance & Drama Centre, graduating in 2003 with Distinction & teaching qualifications in RAD Ballet, ISTD Tap, Modern Theatre & National dance. She then went on to perform in various venues around the UK before joining MS Astoria & sister ship MS Astor as a dancer for a 3 year world cruise.
Since returning to Liverpool in 2007 Claire continued to teach various styles of dance to children in Dance Schools & Primary Schools throughout the UK.
Wanting to get more adults involved in a dance cardio workout & looking for something a little different Claire fell in love with Zumba & became a certified Zumba instructor in 2010. Since then she has been shaking her shimmy all over Liverpool with both adults & children. In 2016 claire became a Block Fit instructor & was trained by the fantastic Chico Slimani himself.
