From a very young age, it has been my dream to dance with The Royal Ballet. I am thrilled to announce that in December 2017 my dream became a reality as I was offered an amazing opportunity, I will join the Royal Ballet Company as an Aud Jebsen Young Dancer for the 2018/19 season. 


I am so very thankful for the support and training I have received from so many wonderful teachers. To my family and friends, I can’t thank you enough, you have never once questioned my dream to dance, your love and support has continually lifted me and I couldn’t have done this without you.

one of the best days of my life. I am beyond excited to finally announce that I will be joining The Royal Ballet Company as an Aud Jebsen Young Dancer for the 2018/19 season.

12 years ago I started reading a book series. The ‘Royal Ballet School diaries’. I remember thinking how lucky those girls were and I wanted to be one of them but I thought it was an unrealistic dream. If someone had told me back then that I would get the chance to attend the school, graduate and then actually join the company I wouldn’t have believed them, but here I am now and I couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds!!

There are no words to describe how thankful I am for all the people who helped me get to this point. The biggest thanks goes to my incredible family who have been there supporting me every step of the way. Lastly there’s a teacher who’s taught me since I was 3 and honestly I wouldn’t be where I am today without her... mum (Annette Roselli) thank you, for everything!!

can’t wait to start the new season!
