Why did you become a dancer?
I actually started dancing at 5 years old as a weekend activity that my parents chose for me. Around 10 years old, my teacher sent me to some national competitions, and I knew dancing was not just a hobby anymore. I loved being on stage, the challenge of it and the reward at the end! It became more serious and I started a National school in Paris. I had a balance between school and dance classes in order to keep studying while I was practicing 15 hours per week. At this time, becoming a dancer was more a dream than a reality. I realised how hard it can be when I started to audition, but I definitely did not want to give up. I also realised, around 17 years old, how enjoyable dancing on stage is and how interesting working on different styles and interpretation is. This was the real time I knew I wanted to become a dancer.
