Nikky Smedley

Nikky Smedley has spent her career trying to avoid what her parents called ‘a proper job’. This doesn’t mean she hasn’t worked hard. Running her own dance company for twenty years, she staged the UK’s first piece of vertical dance and, playing God, created and destroyed the world on quantum and geographic scales. After Teletubbies, she worked behind the scenes in children’s TV for a further decade and currently writes and performs stories for young children. Nikky is a highly sought-after conference speaker and still choreographs, though these days she jumps up and down less than she once did.
