Hello, I’m Natalie, a third year Natural Scientist at Magdalene. I have trained in Cecchetti Ballet and ISTD modern, achieving my Intermediate level in both. In the past, I have attended the Cecchetti associates and performed in multiple shows with the Demeric school of Dance and Surrey Youth Ballet. Joining CUTAZZ, taking part in the shows and competing with the contemporary team has been a brilliant and thoroughly rewarding part of my university experience. I look forward to playing some tunes and having a good time dancing with all of you in the Beginner Lyrical/Jazz class!
Hi I’m Beth, a third year natural scientist at Homerton and this year’s Competitions Officer! I have danced my entire life and been trained in styles such as ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre and contemporary. I achieved Advanced 1 RAD ballet and intermediate tap. I’ve loved being part of CUTAZZ for the last two years and I’m very excited to be more involved by becoming the intermediate jazz teacher. Hopefully we can have a year full of jumps, turns and lost of fun!!
Hi, I’m Vicki and I am a third year historian at Homerton College. I have been dancing since the age of three, and have been trained in many styles including ballet, jazz, contemporary and most importantly my favourite style tap! I’ve reached ISTD advanced 2 tap, and have been involved with the nationally recognised Tap Attack Company. Being a part of CUTAZZ the past two years has been a great experience and I look forward to spending my final year in Cambridge doing what I love!

Hi! I’m Beth, a second year HSPS student as St Catharine’s and this year’s Vice President of CUTAZZ. I began dancing when I was 5, achieving my Intermediate Ballet and Advanced 2 Modern and Jazz levels with ARBTA, as well as GCSE Dance. I taught jazz and tap at my dance school as a student teacher which I thoroughly enjoyed. Dance has carried on being a huge part of my life since I started university as I am a member of the competition team this year and have continued to attend classes. I cannot wait to start teaching for CUTAZZ, work together on some creative routines and technique and meet lots of new faces!
