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)!

Hofesh Shechter: Grand Finale & Live Interview with Sadler’s Wells!

So a couple of weeks ago, I had one of my best experiences in the dance world to date.

Later that week, I attended a…

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…

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…
