Charlotte is a professional dancer, actress and singer based in London.

Charlotte has been dancing since the age of 3, where she trained under the watchful eye of her Aunt at the Godalming School of Dance. At the age of 18 she won a scholarship to train at Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom where she studied dance and musical theatre for three years.

During her time at Laines Charlotte had the opportunity to perform several lead roles in college productions and also to work professionally, playing title roles in pantomimes over the Christmas period. All a brilliant foundation for what was to come.

Upon graduating Charlotte joined the West End Cast of Dirty Dancing at the Aldwych Theatre where she danced in the ensemble and covered the role of Penny. During this time Charlotte was lucky enough to meet choreographer Bill Deamer who gave her the chance to dance on stage at The London Palladium in his production of Fly With The Stars, performing the duet ‘Dancing in the Dark’ alongside Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton du Beke, a duet originally created for Fred Astaire and Cyd Charis in the movie The Band Wagon.

Her next role as Tantomile in CATS took her over the seas to Germany, where she remained for 2 years as she then took on the role of Penny in the original Berlin production of Dirty Dancing. Berlin was an incredible experience for Charlotte, learning a new language and discovering a new country and a new way of life. As Dirty Dancing in Berlin came to end the German journey did not. Charlotte returned to England but it wasn’t long until Germany came calling and Charlotte was offered the chance to return to CATS, this time playing the role of Bombalurina in the European touring production.

Charlotte then returned to the UK and to Dirty Dancing, to reprise the role of Penny, this time in the first ever national touring production of Dirty Dancing, playing to sold out audiences and receiving rave reviews

Following this she joined the UK tour of Grease as Patty Simcox, also understudying and playing the role of Sandy, before being offered the opportunity of stepping in to Ginger Rogers’ shoes and playing the role of Dale Tremont in the West End production of Top Hat playing opposite Tom Chambers. Charlotte completed a three month run in the role at the Aldwych Theatre and can still be spotted across London on the posters and promotional material sporting the famous feather dress!

The following year Dirty Dancing returned to the West-End and with it so did Charlotte, reprising the role of Penny once more, before stepping back in to Ginger’s shoes taking the Olivier award-winning production of Top Hat off on tour around the UK and then on to Japan.

Post Top Hat projects have included Lets Dance Again at The Royal Festival Hall, bringing back to the stage some of Hollywood’s most loved movie musical numbers alongside a 20-piece orchestra. She also performed as one of the pro dancers on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Charlotte feels incredibly blessed to have been able to make a career out of doing what she loves and would like to thank her family and friends for their constant support and belief, especially her Aunt, Carys, who taught her everything she needed to know and gave her the strength to believe it was all possible.

Below is critical acclaim for Charlotte's performances in the West End and Internationally.
