Former EastEnders star has gone from soap acting to something completely new as Luisa Bradshaw-White reveals she will now be taking dance classes
EastEnders’ Luisa Bradshaw-White says Tina Carter is ‘definitely dead’
Ex-EastEnders star Luisa Bradshaw-White revealed her new career after she quit acting to find her “calling”.
The star – who played Tina Carter in the soap opera – moved on from acting to pursue a world of dance.
She now hosts Ecstatic dance classes, which she says is the perfect way to experience the excitement of going out without having the hangover.
Ecstatic dance is a type of dance and aerobic exercise, where people let go and let loose to the rhythm.
The 46-year-old and her business partner are setting up a class in the small village of Chorleywood in Hertfordshire.
She is introducing the classes after she found comfort in the exercise a few years back.
Luisa explained to HertsLive : “Everybody drinks the cacao [tree that produces cocoa beans] so there’s a little bit of a ceremony and then people just start dancing and I DJ the music to start really, really chilled and then the beat picks up and the cacao really opens your heart.
“The cacao and the music together is such an awesome combination.”
Drinking cacao along with the unique form of dancing apparently creates a sense of euphoria.
A few months ago, Luisa opened up about how she accidentally “came out as gay”.
The actress – who has been married to wife Annette Yeo since 2015 – never thought about the fact she could be gay when she was younger.
It took a conversation with friends before she accidentally blurted it out.
“The realisation came when I was around 19 and talking with some new friends,” she revealed in Metro.co.uk.

“They both said they liked women and without thinking, I replied, ‘Ooh yes, me too!’. I sort of gasped as it was the first time I had even considered that I might not be straight.”
The Holby City actress went on to reminisce about all the fun times she had with her pals after coming out.
“It’s crazy that a fleeting conversation with new friends could have had such an impact on my life and I got the best introduction to being a gay person you could ask for,” she added.
“I had huge amounts of fun. While I was out to have a good time, I knew almost instantly after coming out that all I wanted was to find my true love, settle down and have a family.”
