What made you want to be a dancer?

My sister was the initial reason for me starting but it became my future goal to become a professional when I first watched Concerto pas de deux by Macmillan.

What would be your dream role to dance be and why?

I would love the opportunity to dance the role of Romeo as the demanding pas de deux and the challenge of getting lost in the character and the story would be a great achievement in my career.

Baryshnikov was a huge influence and inspiration. The quality of his dancing from classical to tap and contemporary in my opinion is unmatched.
