Do you remember a moment when you decided or realised that you wanted to be a professional dancer?
At 11 years old, and being academically gifted while having danced and performed my whole life, I was given a choice between several diverse pathways forwards, and dance was the one that I chose, no contest!
What’s your pre-show ritual?
Working for Scottish Ballet involves many diverse pre show make up, hair and wig routines. However, whatever is required for a show with Scottish Ballet, I like to be in the theatre at least 1 hour before curtain up.
Are there any dancers or artists that inspire you?
I like to look outside of dance for inspiration, as I believe it can lead to a more unique approach. I am a huge fan of the original Star Wars movie trilogy, and I look to the ways the characters tell their story in a way that keep audiences coming back even today.
What are a few words that would describe your personality in the studio?
Creative, noisy, busy, and very passionate!
