'Having a company sponsor me throughout my Upper School training has been invaluable to me and my family. It has really made it possible for me to follow my dream and has taken a huge amount of financial pressure and stress off my family, which they are truly grateful for. I am currently auditioning around the world for a place with a ballet company and am looking forward to what the future holds.'
