When did you join Scottish Ballet?
I joined Scottish Ballet in 2013 and was promoted to First Artist in 2014.
Why did you become a dancer?
When I was young I did gymnastics, but when my family moved back to France we couldn't find any gymnastic courses. Playing the clarinet at the Conservatoire I was told there was a dance course I could apply for - so that's what I did!
Since then I enjoyed ballet more and more until the point that this was not enough anymore, and started going to national competitions so that I could go on stage. We automatically tried to find a system for me that could combine school and ballet. I got accepted at Paris Opera Ballet School and from that moment I have always wanted to be a ballet dancer.
I have presented my own independent choreographic work at the Cottier Dance Project 2015 and Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015. You can find out more about it on my website! www.constantvigier.com
