In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it.
I am a professional dancer with Northern Ballet. I tour and perform ballets in and around the UK. It took me many years of hard work and training until I could audition and be accepted into the Company.
On 11 January the Technical team set off to China and today (12 January) the dancers and rest of the Northern Ballet crew departed.
