Q&A With Australia Ballerina Charlotte Mitchell

I recently had the opportunity to ask Charlotte some questions about her journey as a ballerina. Charlotte is an amazing dancer, she takes to the stage with incredible poise and elegance, her passion and dedication to ballet is remarkable. Below are her responses.

Q1: When did you start ballet?

I started ballet when I was 3 years old

Q2: Where do you currently dance?

I am currently dancing at the McDonald college in Sydney Australia

Q3: How long have you been en pointe for?

I’ve been on point for over 4 years now

Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?

I am currently wearing Bloch synergy

Q5: How did you first get involved in ballet?

My mum put me into ballet because she used to be a dancer

Q6: What is your favourite variation?

I have a ton of favourite variations but I really like Kitri act 3

Q7: What company would you love to work for?

I don’t know what my dream company is as it is constantly changing but I love the American ballet theatre

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

Some of my favourite moments in ballet is when you finally get a movement or a correction you’ve been working on for weeks, months, or even years (Its one of the best feelings in the world)

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

I’m super basic so I am obsessed with Misty Copeland just because of her work ethic and how she never gave up despite of what people told her. I also really like Jade Wood in the Australian Ballet just because of her expression in her dancing and how graceful she moves on stage

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

Just to keep your options open and try and be as multi-talented as possible because you never know what going to happen in a audition room

Q11: Classical or Romantic tutu?

Oh good question I really have a good appreciation for a good romantic tutu and because I’m tall I feel like it just looks really good on stage x

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

I don’t find myself with much free time since I dance full time and when I’m not dancing I’m studying, I do like to play piano and sing though when I have the time to practice.
