Favourite roles to perform

  • Performing as The Sylph in La Sylphide. Grasping the romantic style and exploring the theme of unattainable love was sheer joy.
  • Simon Dow gave me a duet in his work danza de la Vida. It was a tender, sensual and devestating struggle between my partner and I. 
  • Russian Girl in Balachine's Serenade, I will always be mesmerised by the way the exquisite score is woven with movement.

Manon, Hanna in The Merry Widow, the works of Jiří Kylián, George Balachine and Kennth MacMillan.
