I am Freya Bennett-Nielsen and I’m a 17 year old carnival artist based in Manchester. I specialise in dance but I’ve recently been trying my hand at percussion and have also had a taste for project management in 2017. I’m currently looking forward to starting my artistic career after education in the next 6-8 months. This year I am working with 2 other dancers on a dance development project for Juba Do Leão and am also continuing to develop my percussion skills with Juba and also Jubacana, a youth drumming and dance group that I also help to project manage along with the rest of the committee. Do have a look on the Mossley Light Festival website at Celebrate Festival, a piece of work that I contributed to in the summer (https://mossleylightfestival.co.uk/celebrate-festival/).
