Nicola Frankland

LEAP Ambassador 2021/22

Age: 21

From: Solihull

I am currently:  A transport planner for an engineering consultancy

I am a LEAP Ambassador because: Ballet and the Arts being enjoyable and accessible is something I am hugely passionate about. I am excited to learn all about the work Birmingham Royal Ballet do in the community.

What are you passionate about: I love ballet, musical theatre, paddle boarding and animals.

Interesting fact about me: I was ten years old when I first performed in a professional show and I played the role of a giant chicken! However, my favourite ballet routine I have performed is Waltz of the Flowers.

First encounter with Birmingham Royal Ballet: Watching Swan Lake in 2012. It was mesmerising!
