Why did you become a dancer?
I started my first ballet classes in my local ballet school at the age of 5 because my best friend had started dancing there, after my first few experiences of ballet classes I started to really enjoy it so I kept going but at this age it was just a hobby. The older I got the more I started to learn about what a ballet dancer was and started to see professional ballet productions and I loved all the sets and costumes and knew that one day I wanted to do that. At the age of 14 I started at The Royal Ballet Lower School and got more of a taste of a higher level of training, I loved to learn and try new steps and enjoyed the challenge. I knew after my first year there that this was what I wanted to do. I then moved onto The Royal Ballet Upper School and was able to experience company performances and the feeling I got from performing pushed me even more on working my hardest to achieve my goal of becoming a professional dancer.
