I would like to thank the Alana Haines Awards and the Queensland Ballet for this incredible opportunity to attend 2 week full-time tuition. I was truly honoured to receive this scholarship. I thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks at Queensland Ballet. I loved learning new styles of dancing and I enjoyed all the teaching methods and I loved meeting new people. Miss Elana was a true inspiration.
Even in the short time that I was there I felt that my dancing had improved greatly and returning to my grade work in Auckland I believe my technique had improved. I loved being able to experience a full-time dance academy and I loved learning the Vaganova technique. I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity and I will always remember my time at Queensland Ballet.
