This past Tuesday, MADD hosted Gill Upsher who spoke about her experiences as a dancer, model, makeup artist and ballet teacher. She shared with us her journey through times of mental and physical struggle, numerous injuries, as well as difficulties because of the strict specifications for ballerina roles.
Gill - who now works as a dancer and ballet teacher at the Bovim Ballet company - emphasised the determination it takes to be a successful dancer but also highlighted the travel and experience perks of the career..
Pupils found this event insightful as to where a dance career may lead them.
