I was extremely honoured to attend The Australian Ballet School on a four-week full time scholarship.
The first two weeks consisted of level 3 and 4 classes which included classical ballet vaganova technique, contemporary, character and conditioning classes. My teachers included Irena Konstantinova, Sergey Konstantinov, Christine Howard and Margargate Wilson.
The Australian Ballet teachers were very encouraging and motivating and I felt I experienced a taste of what full time training at The Australian Ballet would be like.
The second part of my scholarship was attending the Australian ballet summer school, which was also an incredible experience.
While I was in Melbourne I was lucky enough to watch the Australian Ballet School Showcase, which was an inspirational performance of stunning classical and contemporary dances.
The whole experience had motivated me to work hard towards my goals. I would very much like to thank the Alana Haines Awards, the sponsors, Lisa Pavane and the Australian Ballet School for my exceptional scholarship experience.
