Which Northern Ballet roles would you most like to dance?

I really loved the role of Octavia in Cleopatra and Swan Lake’s Odette/Odilia would be a challenge and a dream.

What do you like most about being a dancer?

Classical ballet is a disappearing art; I’d like to preserve it.

If you could adapt one work into a ballet what would it be?

I would adapt the 2001 movie Pearl Harbour because I like ballet showing something about history.
