In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it I started dancing when I was 4 years old and loved it straight away. I then joined Northern Ballet School when I was 16 in Manchester as I didn’t want to go to far away from my mum so it was perfect. Auditions followed and I was lucky enough to be offered a contract with my dream job with Northern Ballet. Where can you be found when you’re not at Northern Ballet? On my days off I like to be outside. I particularly love being by the sea so I like to take trips to the coast as often as I can.
