Tell us how you got into dance

My twin sister used to dance when she was 8. I thought that looked fun and quite easy.

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

Usually I'm out with friends, at the cinema or shopping. I also love to catch up on my favourite TV series.

Which is your favourite Northern Ballet production and why?

Romeo & Juliet. It's the biggest tragic love story of all time. It's also set in Italy, what more could you ask for?

If you weren't a Dancer what would you be?

A tattoo artist.

Who would play you in a film of your life?

It would have to be Adrien Brody. I'm often told I look like him. You decide!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

"Just do it."

What song will always get you dancing?

Spice Up Your Life, Spice Girls.

What scares you?

Sharks, homophobia and flying.

What would be your Mastermind specialist subject?

It'd be "Greek mythology".

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

Playing it Straight. Just because I'm curious to see how well I could hide it and how far I'd get.

What do you want to do before you die?

I want to synchro dive off the 10 metre board with Tom Daley.

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

The main cast of Friends.

A phrase I use far too much is...

"Let's have a kiki."

Describe yourself in three words?

  • Sweet
  • Energetic
  • Fashionista
