Born: Japan

Trained: Acri-Horimoto Ballet Academy and English National Ballet School

Joined: 2012, Soloist 2017

Dream roles: Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty, because I love pure classical dance, and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, because I want the challenge of dancing a dramatic role.

Most challenging role: The title role in Sylvia – it requires a lot of stamina and the ability to change character in Act II.

Dance heroine: Former Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer Miyako Yoshida.

Created roles: I created roles in ballets by Company dancers Ruth Brill (Matryoshka) and Kit Holder (Quatrain).

Off-stage: I enjoy knitting, crochet and sewing.
