What has been your favourite role to perform and why?

"It was my first year with Queensland Ballet fresh out of the Australian Ballet School and I was given the opportunity to perform Albrecht in Giselle. This was my first ever principal role in a full length classical ballet with a professional company. I found Albrecht challenging as a first year dancer but also very rewarding, I'll always hold this ballet close to my heart."
