As I arrived at Sadler’s Wells for my first residency, I felt incredibly nervous. Just being in the building felt very overwhelming, I was very worried about feeling awkward and meeting 39 completely new people and whether they would like me!

The first residency has been such a great experience. When we all first arrived at Sadler’s Wells, I admit I was nervous, but I settled into the environment very quickly. Traveling together to Tring Park was exciting, as I found myself getting to know people quicker than I thought, meaning I was already comfortable on […]

My first day of the residency I wasn’t sure how I felt, it felt different from last year, the people were different, the energy was different and obviously the choreographic team we were on the coach to go meet were different. However just because something is different and a big change from something I was […]
