Expectations we put on our art and ourselves, how to cultivate our own self worth, embracing the growth and transitions as us as artists and, of course, failure. We cover it all this week with Christie Lee Manning!
Christie Lee Manning is one of the UK’s most versatile performers. Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Christie has worked with such artists as Lenny Kravitz, Nelly Furtado, and Michael Buble. She played a lead role in the musical 'Sweet Mystery', and has performed and adjudicated in Brazil for the XXI International Dance Seminar alongside Chan Goh, Monica Proenca, and Karah Abiog.
