Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream. I also love the look of Romeo and Juliet, Casanova and 1984 so I would like to dance in those productions too.

Career/training highlights

Being chosen by Wayne McGregor in Symbiont(s), dancing Lensky in Onegin, competing at the Prix de Lausanne, dancing Prince Desire in Sleeping Beauty with English National Ballet 2 and definitely having the opportunity to be invited to galas in Spain (nothing compares to being able to dance for my family!).

What do you like most about being a dancer?

Letting the music run freely through my body, the feeling I get of flying and freedom, but most of all making people feel.

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

The Neverending Story.

What is your favourite book?

The Harry Potter saga by J.K. Rowling.

What is your favourite post-show meal?

I love any type of food but if I had to choose then it would be Indian cuisine.

How do you like to relax?

I am a very active person but when I try to relax I like to watch movies, sleep, draw and definitely spend time with my friends.

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

If I weren't a dancer I would love to be an actor, choreographer, designer or even a doctor.
