Why do you want to be in this show?
The first full length dance production I saw was Matthew Bourne's production of Lord of the Flies at the age of 13. It was amazing and inspired my desire to want to become a dancer. I have always loved dance but the great thing about New Adventures is that you get to act and tell a story too. When I saw the opportunity to be a young dancer in a New Adventures production I knew I had to try. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to dance with my favourite dance company.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
You will be able to spot me in a few very old episodes of Coronation Street - I took all the candy floss from the set that I could get my hands on.
