Why did you become a dancer?
If it wasn't for my sister I would have never started ballet. She would go to her local dance school and when I arrived with my mum to pick her up I would sneak into the back of the class and try copying the moves. It took months of persuasion to get me to join in a class and there, in my gym shorts and socks, I realised I'd caught the dancing bug. My teacher quickly convinced me to audition for Junior Associates of the Royal Ballet School and from there the rest is history.
