Theatrical Endeavours 

( RESUME - SPOTLIGHT LINK: www.spotlight.com/0690-8977-2992 )

Originally hailing from Falkirk in Scotland, Donna initially moved to London straight out of high school to attend The London School of Musical Theatre. However, following successful auditions the opportunity to work beckoned and Donna decided to forfeit her place and take on the professional world.

 

Her credits cover repertory theatre, National tours, film, TV, voiceover, cabaret, corporate role play, live and online commercials and more in both Europe and the U.S having been granted a performance visa and sponsorship with a talent manager across the pond.

In 2008, with the intention of simply fulfilling her other passions of fitness, Latin music, and education by teaching a few classes on the side, Donna took up the role of Zumba® Education specialist and has had a joyous time travelling the globe representing the Zumba® Fitness brand running Instructor Trainings and presenting at various events including Conventions, Fitness Concerts, Dance Expos, STV Live & Online, TV3 Ireland, This Morning, The Lorraine Show, National Radio, Health & Fitness Magazines & Zumba® Fitness DVDs.

 

In 2020 first love, the very charming Mr. Performance called and she is very happy to be returning to the theatrical world with the release of 3 albums while still holding down her other roles in presenting, educating & holistic wellness, so her life is full of everything she loves, no passion left un-pursued!

Donna has spent her recent time brushing up on skills and training further in the things she loves, including Stage Combat with Combat International, Uppercut Fight, Fight Factory, ID Fight and Take3Action in unarmed and various weapons, Aerial (Fight & Flight with IDFight), Horseback Archery with Northern Archery & Knights of Middle England, The MoCap Vaults Performance Capture - Intro, Heroes & Monsters,
