Past

I started dancing when I was five years old. In the same year I performed in my first ever dance show as a mermaid in the Patricia McIntosh School of Ballet. I have participated in six Cecchetti Society Gala Performances and I am hoping to make it into my seventh one this year. In 2013 I competed in my first ballet competition and was placed runner-up. I successfully auditioned for the KZN Youth Ballet twice. In 2012 I attended the Cecchetti Summer School at Hilton College where I was a level 1 student. I was privileged to be taught by different teachers from other countries.

Present

I have just moved to Crawford College, La Lucia as it is a great school that offers dance as a subject. I feel I can improve my technique and strength in dance there. I dance six days a week doing ballet, modern, contemporary, hip hop and school hour dance classes. I am in Intermediate level for ballet in the Cecchetti ballet society.

Future

It has always been my dream to attend the New York City Ballet Company or the Joffery Ballet School in New York. I plan to work as hard as I can to become the best dancer I can be and I hope to become a principal dancer. By the time I am no longer able to dance with the company I want to teach and still tour with them just as Martha Graham did until her death.
