I recently had the chance to ask Emily-Rose Moore some questions about her journey as a ballerina. Emily-Rose is an amazing dancer, she graces the stage with poise and elegance, her paasion and love for ballet is incredible. Below are her responses.

There was never a specific point in my life where I started ballet, my Mum was a dance teacher so I’ve always grown up dancing.
Q2: Where do you currently dance?
I currently dance at The West Australian School of Ballet/ Dance
Q3: How long have you been en pointe for?
I have only been in pointe for a little over a year now as my feet where very restricted so I had to wait to go en pointe.
Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?
I love Gaynor Minden point shoes they are my favourite. I always get yellow as I like how it’s not to strong or weak.

My favourite memory so far was my first one en pointe, painful but really fun and rewarding
Q9: Who are your ballet roles models? Dancers that inspire you.
My ballet role models are Sylvia Guillem and Svetlana Zakharova there feet and legs are breathe taking and the way they move and express feeling is just amazing.
Q10: Best advice you’ve ever received from a teacher?
If it’s not working it’s not changing is my best advice as it is so true when it comes to dance also no pain no gain is a great one
Q11: Classical or romantic tutu?
I prefer a romantic tutu as I love the way it flows on stage and how it moves, but I also love the classic tutus
Q12: What do you like to do when you aren’t dancing (your free time)?
In my spare time I love to hang out with friends and family and just chill … usually Netflix 😝 I also love a good Pilates class to strengthen my muscles 💕
