I have recently travelled to Paris for a two-week scholarship at the Paris Opera Ballet School Summer Intensive.

Throughout, these two week at the Paris Opera Ballet School I have had such a unique experience, learning from new teachers to making new friends. I was also lucky enough to have Élisabeth Platel take one of my Classical Classes.

My schedule for each day usually consisted of starting with Classical class, then Technique, Baroque and Caractère, however some days would differ for example I would attend Musical, Mime or Barre a terre class.

Overall this incredible experience has given me an insight into what a professional dance school is really like, which makes me want to become a professional dancer even more.

Thank you to the Alana Haines Awards and Judges for giving me this amazing opportunity.
