Favourite Roles

  • Every choreography that I was a part of the creative process!
  • Giselle

Repertoire Includes

  • Solo Swan & Cygnet in Alexei Ratmansky's Swan Lake
  • Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty
  • Lise in La Fille mal gardée
  • Giselle in Giselle
  • The Chosen One in Richard Wherlock's The Rite of Spring

Roles Would Love To Dance

  • Having a full length story ballet created on me... something dramatic & heartwrenching!
  • The tragic heroines: Giselle, Manon, Juliet, Tatiana (the more drama, the better ;-) )
  • One role in particular: Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis in Giselle (It's rare women can be cold and cruel on stage), but I will probably never dance it, being a very petite dancer!
