Founder, choreographer and dancer, Bridie Mayfield’s unique performance style, bringing the separate sides of the dark beauty of ballet and metal together has been previously described as ‘a captivating visual extravaganza that would titilate an audience regardless of musical accompaniment……music and ballet comparing and contrasting with remarkable sophistication.’
