“Although I am young and just starting out as a professional dancer, I can definitely say that I believe the most important thing for a dancer is balance. I mean this in the sense of keeping a balance between life and ballet. Too often I hear that “ballet is life” when in reality I believe that having a balance between hard work, while also exploring other passions in life will have a positive impact on your profession, relationships and general wellbeing.”
