Tring will always be in my heart, I have too many good memories there and so many friends that I made for life. I’m so grateful for all the experiences I had and my training there. I considered myself a classical dancer but I believe nowadays it’s so important to be versatile because in any company in the world, it’s what they want. Tring provides their students with this possibility. I got the chance to perform an important soloist part in Faune of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and this choreography is not made for classical dancers. I believe my contemporary training came back and I was able to perform the rôle thanks to this. I also think it’s great that there are different courses because it nourishes the students from each other as artist. It’s definitely an amazing place that feels like a family were you share you many things and sees you grow as a person but also as an artist.‘
