Secret London: Barbican Conservatory

Hi dancers! I really hope that you have been enjoying my Secret London series. I’ve been posting dance photo galleries here for a couple of years now, but this series is a way for me to add another element and share with you some of the places I love in my home city. I’m trying…

My Surgery Experience

If you’ve been following my story on this blog or my social media channels, you will know that for me, 2019 was really defined by my being injured. I say “being injured” because it most accurately describes the state I was in; I was in pain, I had swelling and inflammation, I was unable to…

Secret London: The Garden at 120- Photo Gallery

Hi dancers! One of the benefits of having a photographer boyfriend is that my Instagram feed is never short of great professional photos. We really love to collaborate on fun experimental photoshoots- in the past we’ve thrown around paint powder, and glitter, I’ve gotten my pointe shoes out in Notting Hill, and we’ve been kicked…

Dare to Dance X Lapasa Sportswear

This is a post that I’m very excited to be sharing with you! Let’s talk about studio to street style. When I first started full-time dance training, I used to throw joggers over my dancewear for travelling to and from the studio, so that I could keep my muscles warm and wouldn’t have to carry…

How to Catch Up in Your Dance Training

As you may know, I started my dance training much later than most. I took my first ever ballet lesson just before I turned 15. I danced a few times a week at local schools, and I didn’t start serious ballet training until I was 21. If you’re not sure how huge a difference that…
