Q&A With Incredible Australian Ballet Superstar Audrey Freeman
I had the opportunity to pose some questions to Australian ballet sensation Audrey Freeman. Audrey is a phenomenal dancer who gracefully owns a stage when on it and is an incredible and elegant dancer. The 14 year old’s determination is unparalleled and her desire to achieve her goals will never be stopped. Audrey previously split her time between the stage and the carpet as a rhythmic gymnast however recently decided to devote all of her time to ballet. She is a kind, considerate and thoughtful person. Audrey recently gained the opportunity to move to the UK for further her development as a ballerina. She is a 2 time YAGP gold medal winner, Prix de lausanne candidate and also a Genee challenge winner.
