Blythe-Lili Couldridge

My name is Blythe and I am 23 years old, I have danced since I was 4 and I have been training professionally since 2015. I began dancing at Shimmi Shake in Petts Wood, then trained for three years at Miskin Theatre. I then received my Degree in Dance and Musical Theatre at Performers College in Essex. Since then, I have danced for Dua Lipa at the 2021 BRIT Awards where I grew my love for Hip-Hop and Commercial Dance. I also performed in the Men’s EURO Closing Ceremony in 2021. Now, in between auditioning, I love to teach and share what others have taught me in my time training!

Sarah’s main focus is to help dancers feel good and encourage them to express themselves fully through the music, because dance after all, ‘is the hidden language of the soul’ Martha Graham.
