Place of birth: Sydney, Australia
My first memory of dance: I was four years old and it was my very first ballet concert. I was dressed in a full clown costume as I was part of the circus. The moment I stepped on stage I forgot all the choreography! Luckily, I had my twin sister right next to me who did a great job of leading the way. I like to believe I was embracing my character’s role as a clown a little better!
My role model: I have two: my parents. My father instilled four core values into all us children from a young age: respect, initiative, responsibility and organisation. Although I may not have understood these words when I was younger, they have helped prepare me for the demanding career path I have chosen to pursue. In addition, my mother is a nurse who demonstrates the importance of kindness and compassion towards others. I am grateful for the opportunities my parents have given me and the lifelong lessons I have learnt.
My dream role or repertoire: I have always loved the role of Nikiya in Marius Petipa's La Bayadère as well as Kitri from Don Quixote. To be able to perform these challenging yet rewarding roles would be a dream come true.
My big ambition: In life I want to go as far as possible within The Australian Ballet and to travel around the world with the company. In addition, I will continue to develop and challenge myself to reach my full potential.
When I’m not dancing you’ll find me … playing competitive euchre or five hundred with my family, watching movies, listening to music or cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
