My name is Laura, I'm 19, I started dancing in 2010. I started pointe 8 months after I began and I was in the Junior Company of Continental Ballet Company. I'm not dancing right now because I have a peripheral nerve injury in my ankle.

Notice the fluidity of her wrists and the lightness of her footwork. Characteristics of the English style that she has mastered perfectly! One of the few pure Ashtonian dancers left.
