Kelsey Thompson

Edinburgh University Placement

Kelsey trained in Musical Theatre at SA Performing Arts Centre in Newcastle. After graduating she spent six years in London working as a performer who luckily travelled across Europe as a singer/ dancer and toured the UK in multiple pantomimes.

Alongside performing, Kelsey has been a freelance performing arts teacher in both the North East and London for close to a decade now. 

Most recently Kelsey has moved back to the North East, where she grew up, to complete a master’s degree in Dance Science and Education with Edinburgh University. With her teaching experience, her love of dance, and her enthusiasm to help others, Kelsey is extremely excited to be involved with Helix Arts as part of the next chapter of her career. 

Kelsey will be supporting one of our current Better Connect Projects, Falling On Your Feet- North Tyneside.
