I thought I would let you know where I have progressed to after being so lucky to be a finalist in your awards of 2005 (junior) and 2007 (senior) at 14yrs old.

 

With AHA Awards help I went on to join the Australian Ballet School (4 years) then was lucky enough to be offered a contract with the Augsburg Ballet Company in Germany. I spent two years with this company before being asked to join the Atlanta Ballet Company in the U.S.

 

I loved the Atlanta Ballet company, spending a further two years there but always dreamed of one day returning to Australia as it offers not only wonderful dance companies but also a lifestyle that I love.

 

I finally returned to Melbourne, joining The Australian Ballet Company last year (2016) and loving every minute of it.
