Born: New Zealand

Trained: Australian Ballet School and the Royal Ballet School

Joined: 2019

Dream role: Romeo from Romeo and Juliet– the role is not just physically demanding but also gives male dancers the chance to show as much artistry as the female ones.

Most enjoyable experience on stage: The curtain call after dancing the Prince in Mats Ek’s Swan Lake. Hearing the applause at the end of months of hard work helps to make it all feel worth it.
