Name: Anvere Kaila

Age: 20

Where are you from? Wolverhampton

I am currently in my second year of studying BA English Literature at the University of Birmingham.

I am a LEAP Ambassador because I am intrigued to learn about the behind-the-scenes processes of Birmingham Royal Ballet, specifically to do with Costume, Digital Content and Production, and social media. I look forward to seeing what the programme entails and how I can gain knowledge from specialists working within the arts.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about studying the power of costume within literature, the stage and screen and how it facilitates storytelling, and it is through LEAP that I hope to gain insight on the visual interplay between dance and fashion.
