Young Royal Opera House

Hi everyone! I hope that you had a great start to the season, or academic year. Between university classes starting back up, fresher’s week, vocational classes, and rehearsals starting for upcoming performances, I’ve been super busy (and loving it)! Something else I’ve been working on is promoting the Royal Opera House programme for students and…

My Afternoon at English National Ballet

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been a while- I’ve just moved into a new flat, and finished my first year at university- where did that time go?! That means that as well as my university classes, vocational ballet classes, teaching commitments and commitments to social media work, I’ve been packing, unpacking, commuting from my boyfriend’s parents’…

Review: Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Aladdin

In my role as a Social Mover with Sadler’s Wells, I’ve been fortunate enough to see a lot of wonderful dance performances over the past couple of months.

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…

Dare to Dance is now on YouTube!

I have been toying with the idea of starting a YouTube channel probably for over a year now. However I have never followed through on the impulse because I had some reservations: I have a lot to learn about editing videos, and like most people, I hate hearing my own voice! However, bringing Dare to…

I AM SO DONE

I have had somewhat of a revelation. I have been reflecting on the past academic year, and thinking about my plans and goals for the academic year just starting. This year didn’t go to plan for me. I spent the first two-thirds of the year working really hard towards the goal of getting on to…
