5 Minutes with Olivia Beckford…

Meet the ultimate Superfoxx babe, Olivia Beckford – professional dancer and self-confessed fitness addict. We managed to steal five minutes of her time to get the down low on her 100mph lifestyle…

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Olivia but people call me Livs! I’m a professional dancer from Manchester but now live in East London pursuing my career in dancing, fitness and fashion!

How did you get into dancing?

I’ve been dancing and training since I was about 13 – I’ve now danced with amazing artists such as Demi Lovato, Jess Glynne and recently just returned from a USA Tour with Liam Payne!

Why is fitness/dancing so important to you?

I believe my success in the dance industry, apart from all my hard work, is my mindset. Dancing is my dream and I love using my mind to consistently achieve. It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, what you’ve experienced or how you feel, you can always change your way of thinking and make a negative a positive!

How would you describe your style?

My style is definitely urban. I love tracksuits, cool baggy trousers, crop tops and trainers! I love a bandana and cool accessories. I especially love Supply & Demand, their designs are unique and that matches my personality!

Who/what inspires your style?

Anyone that has a statement look inspires me. Even just walking around daily I get inspiration. I love taking random materials and fabric and turning it into a dress or two piece!

One item of clothing you can’t live without?

I could never live without my bandana! I rehearse a lot and sometimes I’m too tired to do my hair so I just pop it on and it allows me to style it any way!

What are your plans for 2018?

To continue dancing and travelling with amazing artists! I want to inspire younger dancers and teach all over the world. One major goal is to move to America, I’m currently in the process of applying for my visa, L.A here I come!

Top 3 songs on your playlist RN?

Cardi B – be careful, Mabel – Ring Ring, and Childish Gambino – This is America.

Life motto to live by?

People will only treat you how you treat yourself, so treat yourself with love, respect, and kindness.
