TOBY is led by Katy Higgins. Katy started her dance training in Colchester at Colchester School of Dance. She then went onto study Contemporary dance at the Colchester Institute and completed her degree, graduating with First Class Honours in theatre dance, at London Studio Centre where she was a part of the INTOTO dance company, directed by Sue Booker and Leesa Phillips. Whilst in the company she worked with Luke Brown, Gemma Nixon, Freddie Opoku Addaie. Upon graduating she set up TOBY as well as the collaborative company TobyLikesMILK with Phoenix Chase-Meares - Katy takes influence from her training in multiple different styles, but has found that contemporary dance gives her the platform to showcase her own style and seek out other performers who take on her creative visions.
