Hollie Britzman

LEAP Ambassador 2021/22

Age: 17

From: Telford

I am currently: In my second year of studying A Level Art & Design, Geography and Business. In addition to this I also work part time as a steward at my local theatre.

I am a LEAP Ambassador because: I have danced since the age of three and have loved the theatre experiences that have come from this. I would love a career that involved the theatre, and the LEAP Ambassador programme looks like the perfect way to experience all the different roles within the company. 

What are you passionate about: Being creative. In my spare time I enjoy painting and photography. I particularly enjoy oil painting where most of the time I get my inspiration from the photographs I take. These photos can range from portraits to landscapes and architecture.

Interesting fact about me: I performed as Belle in Midland Theatre Ballets production of Beauty and the Beast at The Old Rep Theatre in 2018.

First encounter with Birmingham Royal Ballet: At the age of nine when I joined the Royal Ballet Junior Associate programme, and my lessons were in the Birmingham Royal Ballet studios.
