I'm a Coryphée at Northern Ballet, my job is exciting, challenging and fulfilling. I got into it by spontaneously taking part in a class where my sister had ballet lessons after school.

Where can you be found when you’re not at Northern Ballet?

Probably at the cinema as I'm a bit of a movie buff.

Which is your favourite Northern Ballet production and why?

I Got Rhythm has to be my favourite. It's a great chance to just dance, I love having the musicians (of Northern Ballet Sinfonia) performing live Gershwin music on stage.

I’m a frustrated...

Bowler - I couldn't bowl a strike with a tidal wave.

Who would play you in a film of your life?

John Cho (Harold, from Harold and Kumar)

"Stay curious and never stop asking questions."

What song will always get you dancing?

Most songs by Michael Jackson.

What scares you?


What would be your Mastermind specialist subject?

A general subject in music.

If you were on a reality TV show which would it be and go on and why?

It would have to be Total Wipeout. It looks like a lot of fun and I reckon that I would do alright on it!

What do you want to do before you die?

Help change the world for the better.

It’s your dream dinner party – which six people (dead or alive) would you invite?
