Two years ago, I left my job as a professional Ballet dancer to travel around the world and explore what else dance could offer me. During this time I've met the most incredible human beings, inspiring me in ways I couldn't have imagined.
It was my mission to document this trip so that I could then be able to look back and remind myself of all the experiences I encountered. After being so used to performing on a stage, all of a sudden I was left feeling stuck and uncreative, with no form of expression. Whilst spending most of my time in South America, I started to take photos of dancers that I met on my travels. Although there was a language barrier, it didn't matter because we connected through a deeper meaning and a universal language of dance.
I'm now currently in Monte Carlo working on an Opera providing me with whole new experience along with new encounters. This video showcases what is to come on the channel, as I experiment and share new relationships with fellow artists on this path of self-discovery.
