Favourite roles to perform

Petite Mort which I was lucky enough to have the privilege to perform and I loved it because it was challenging but the music and seamless choreography just flowed once you got onstage.

Roles I would love to dance

I have always wanted to dance the classics such as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet and Odette/Odile in Swan Lake.

Dance inspiration

The beautiful music and all of the passion and creativity you can pour into each movement. I also love all of the hard work behind it all!
