I’m currently a Trainee Affiliate Teacher with The Royal Ballet School as part of their Affiliate Training and Assessment Programme. The journey to this point included a rigorous application process, and I was absolutely thrilled to be selected to take part in the intensive training.

During half term I pushed myself out of my comfort zone during an intensive 5-day training session at The Royal Ballet Upper School in Covent Garden and it was quite the experience.

Throughout this immersive journey, I had the privilege of learning from a group of skilled teachers and knowledgeable tutors. Their dedication to dance and teaching was inspiring, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.

I’m looking forward to bringing these new insights and knowledge back to the studio as I continue on this exciting path.
