Alicia has 15 years of teaching experience, and is the recent winner of the Arthur J Gallagher Award for receiving the highest mark in any teaching exam worldwide, within the theatre branch of the IDTA.
She trained at the Elizabeth Hill School of Dance and Drama, in Merseyside in both RAD and ISTD, gaining high distinctions in ballet, modern and tap exams. She then went on to train professionally at Phil Winston's Theatreworks on a 3 year dance and musical theatre course.
As a child, Alicia was a championship dancer, and is proud to say she once held the title of Miss Dance of Great Britain, which is still to this day, the most prestigious award any young dancer can win. She was also the winner of the Janet Cramm Awards, and held many other titles as a child, such as All of England, British and International Champion in ballet, modern and tap.
