For the past few years I have been dancing professionally in Auckland while completing my university degree. I came to the Apollo full time course this year with the goal of taking my skills in the entertainment industry to an international level.
Sarah has helped me to increase my expectation of myself as a dancer and performer. I really appreciate her honest and holistic approach to preparing dancers for the industry as well as the high standard that she requires.
From ballet to acting, aerial, and audition technique, the range of subjects and quality of teachers has helped me improve my skills in a diverse range of areas. I am grateful that the hard work both Sarah and I have put into my development this year is paying off through my work in the industry. I currently work with several agencies and companies around Auckland and some of the work I have done this year include performing on X Factor New Zealand with Savage and Timmy Trumpet as well as Ricky Martin, several corporate shows in and outside of Auckland as well as filming for FIFA under 20 World Cup. I am excited to continue to develop as a dancer and performer at Apollo and to reach my potential in this industry both in Auckland and overseas.
