Since completing training at Modus Operandi in 2018, her dancing has been shaped by the training she has received from Lee Su-Feh, Helen Walkley and Peter Bingham, as well as the work she has done with and for All Bodies Dance Project, Sasha Kleinplatz, Mardon + Mitsuhashi, and The Party (Layla Marcelle and Kyla Gardiner). Andrea’s practice also includes creating audio descriptions to increase access to art for blind and low vision audiences.
