Jo trained at the Roshe School of Dancing in
West Sussex with further training in London. Jo reached advanced level in 5 disciplines of dance and was awarded the best
solo modern dance at the ‘All England Competition.’ Jo was teaching and competing in dance competitions, modelling,
and touring the UK as a member of various girl bands, featuring on the same bill as artists like Samantha Mumba and Blue.
It was at this time when she caught the attention of a well known record executive who was aware of Simon Webbe’s search
to find a final member for L.A.D.É. Jo was an ideal candidate for that third spot and when the girls met their singing and
dancing styles instantly meshed.
