by Sara Coffield, Student, Canada’s National Ballet School
My name is Sara, I am 17 years old and a student at Canada’s National Ballet School.
I started ballet at age 3 with my playgroup while I was living in Indonesia. I have been doing it ever since while my family was moving around. My family now lives in Calgary, Alberta (in Western Canada) and I live in the residence in Toronto.
I came to NBS at age 11 for my first Summer School. I was then accepted into the full-time Professional Ballet Program for grade 6. I have since survived the old school facilities and moved into the new facilities with 12 new beautiful studios, a theater, and a complete academic building.
I have learned so much throughout my years at NBS and look forward to entering my grade 12 year and being a part of Assemblée Internationale!
