Young British Dancer of the Year 2013 – News Flash!

YBDY_tutu01I’m through to the Semi-Final tomorrow! I can hardly believe it, and a ticket for my mum to watch too.

Today I was in the 2nd of three preliminary classes, watched behind closed doors by an YBDY_tutuadjudicating panel. Then came a three hour wait until we were recalled for the announcement of who had made it through to the next round tomorrow.

I will perform the energetically demanding Solo from the Pas de Trois in Act I of Swan Lake for the List 1 category. My tutu is pale gold and cream. Dressing room snaps here and yes, that is a tiara!

The Final will be on 9 March at the Linbury Theatre of the Royal Opera House. I’m not really expecting to get there, given that tomorrow I will be competing against both girls and boys two years ahead of me and almost two years older as well.

I will keep you posted.
