Q&A With American Ballerina Daisy Wyatt

I recently had the opportunity to ask Daisy Wyatt some questions about her journey as a ballerina. Daisy is an incredible dancer, she graces the stage with poise and elegance, her dedication for ballet is unmatched. Below are her responses.

Q1: When did you start ballet?

I started ballet when I was 3, but started seriously training in a program when I was 12.

Q2: Where do you currently dance?

I dance at Artistic Motion Preparatory Academy.

Q3: How long have you been en pointe for?

I have been en pointe for 4 years.

Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?

I currently wear Gaynor Mindens, but I also like Ghrisko 2007

Q5: How did you first get involved in ballet?

When I was little, I would dance all around my house (I still do 😜), so my mom signed me up for ballet classes and I would look forward to them so much every week.

Q6: What is your favourite variation?

I love the Aurora act 3 variation, partly because I just danced Aurora in sleeping beauty and fell in love with the role Aurora.

Q7: What company would you love to work for?

My absolute dream company is ABT, but I would also love to dance anywhere in Europe such as Italy or Switzerland.

Q8: Do you have a favourite memory/moment in ballet?

My favorite moment is probably yesterday, I performed my dream role of Aurora in Sleeping Beauty and that was so amazing.

Q9: Who are your ballet roles models? Dancers that inspire you.

I look up to Diana Vishneva and Natalia Osipova. As well as Evegenia, Alina, Ulyana and Olga Smirnova.

Q10: Best advice you’ve ever received from a teacher?

I have received so much amazing advice from my teachers, all the corrections they give are so helpful, and I appreciate their honesty.

Q11: Classical or romantic tutu?

Both!!!!

Q12: What do you like to do when you aren’t dancing (your free time)?

I don’t have much free time, between school and dance but sometimes on Sundays I get to take a nice Epsom salt bath and drink tea, which is always nice to help relax my muscles. I also babysit occasionally and enjoy that as well!
