YBDY Semi-Finalist 2014

This afternoon I made it through to the Young British Dancer of the Year (YBDY) Semi-Finals. I will perform Aurora’s pas de deux variation from Act III of Sleeping Beauty. Can’t wait!

PS: Despite the semi-final going quite well for me, I wasn’t selected for the final. I was happy to have had the chance to perform my solo though. Eight girls and eight boys were selected, however all prizes went to the boys this year.

  1. Congratulations on your progress!
    And I have a little question for you:
    Would you say that if you earn a high Distinction in the RAD Advanced 2 (or Solo Seal) Award, you would have a realistic chance to get a contract with a ballet company? What I´m saying is, is the level the RAD sets high enough, or is it impossible to get to the level you would need to be without daily vocational training at a big important ballet school?
