Debbie’s career has spanned the widest range of show business genres, incorporating Classical ballet, Modern Dance, Cabaret, Theatre, Television and Films.
After finishing her training at the Royal Ballet School Debbie joined the Iranian National Ballet until political reasons forced her to return to the UK. There she went into the more commercial side of dance and appeared on many TV Light Entertainment shows.
Debbie also enjoyed performing abroad, appearing on TV shows and touring with Abba, Chris de Burgh and James Last.
Passing one audition changed her life. The Delfont Organisation placed her as a dancer in the Paul Daniels Summer Show in Great Yarmouth and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since then, together, they have appeared in countless television shows, had a record breaking run at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London’s West End and also returned there for two short runs. Another West End credit was a successful Christmas show at The Savoy Theatre. Together with Paul, Debbie has performed for most of the major companies in after dinner cabarets. The list is endless.
Of course, whilst continuing to perform with Paul, Debbie has almost as many credits in her own right, as presenter, an after dinner speaker and a most magical performer.
From the year 2000 until 2003 Debbie fulfilled a lifelong dream, as Artistic Director and Choreographer, of the highly successful Classical Ballet Company, Ballet Imaginaire. As well as presenting the well-known classics Swan Lake and Coppelia, Debbie has created two completely new Classical Ballets, The Artist’s Dream and Phantom – The Ballet for the company.
