I was very lucky to be offered a scholarship to the RAD International Summer School, thank you very much to Katie Haines for the amazing opportunities offered through the Alana Haines Awards. It was exciting to be part of such a big competition and to watch so
many wonderful dancers compete, I especially enjoyed watching the finals.
The RAD International Summer school was an amazing experience, it was a wonderful opportiunity to learn from international guest teachers and meet other dancers who had travelled from all over NZ and other countries to take part in the 2 weeks of classes. I was very privileged to be taught for the 2 weeks by Lynn Wallis, Artistic director of the Royal Academy of Dance for my classical classes and I loved my contemporary classes with Dale Pope. Our two weeks of dancing finished with two performances showcasing our work.
Thank you very much everyone for this wonderful opportunity, I feel so lucky to have received the scholarship and spent such an amazing 2 weeks at the RAD International Summer School.
