My first memory of dancing was as a small
child dancing to the music at during the end credits of films. It would always
happen and people would be so surprised.
My mother then decided to enroll me in
local street dance classes because even though I was dancing, I had no rhythm.
When I was in secondary school I joined a
group of students who had their own dance group and we used to make
performances for the school. We taught ourselves after school and had a mentor
who guided us. Out of the 4 of us, 3 became professional dancers. For me what
is amazing is seeing that we were simply passionate first and that allowed us
to achieve dreams. I do not think any of us were thinking about being
professionals at the time, we did not know that it was an option.
After that I began ballet, when was I 15
years old. This is very late to begin so I found it very difficult but I
studied a lot and worked hard.
I did not really think about becoming
professional until I first got into the BRIT School, which is a free performing
arts school in London. Previous alumni included Adele, Amy Winehouse and Jessie
J. It was almost like the film ‘Fame’.
After that I managed to get in to the
Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, also in London, and the rest
is history as they say.
Since becoming a professional dance artist, I have had many incredible experiences. I am extremely grateful to all of my teachers and people that have believed in me along the way. I hope that by joining Noism1 I can learn a lot but also share with the audiences my passion for dance. I hope that they will respond well to my performances and get something from them.
