Having witnessed the power of dance on her late grandmother, Jane also conducts older adult community classes through Akademi’s Dance Well project, focusing on those with or without dementia. She is the London Correspondent for dancejournal/hk and a mentor for Arts Emergency, supporting young people who wish to pursue dance as a career. To further her understanding and development of the body as well as broaden her movement vocabulary, she has been training in Wing Chun since 2014.

She champions South Asian and inclusive dance practice.
