I really like summertime. It’s warm and nice. The only summer school I’ve been on was a Bartholin week here at the theater. There were some young dancers from around the world who came and took part in the exchange program. It was a nice experience and it was the first time I tried something like that.
I had only three week’s vacation this summer, so there was room for only one week’s summer school, because I had two weeks in Turkey with my family, which was super cool! I hope that I can get some scholarships to go out and dance this summer. I would love to go to the U.S. with my best friend and take a summer school program. It could be so nice!
About ballet and academics, I do not do academics anymore, it’s completely finished. So now I’m apprentice at The Royal Danish Theater Ballet on full time. 10 am – 6 pm. I do not know what my favourite thing about ballet is. I think it’s a good mix between to move to the music, get the pulse up and strive to become a better dancer all the time. I strive a lot and I am determined!
