Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Aleyna and I'm 14 years old. I live in Germany. I wanted to become a professional dancer since I was very young. It has always been my biggest dream and so it's still

How long have you been dancing for?

Ive been dancing since I was 3 years old.

What styles of dance do you specialize in? 

Beside ballet I also took jazz classes for a while when I was young. I think Ive always been concentrated on ballet.

What made you want to start dancing?

The daughter of friends from my parents was doing ballet and I went to a nutcracker performance in which she danced. After that I knew I want to become a ballerina and my parents got me in a dance school. In there we just jumped around and it wasnt ballet at all. I wanted to do ballet so we searched so long for a school and finally found one. I loved it so much. Since then I changed ballet schools two times and now Im at the John-Cranko-school for 5 years.

What has been your most memorable moment?

My most memorable moment was when I first was on stage. I had a little solo role and was only 6 years old. Ill never forget that I was so so nervous but when I got on stage. I couldnt stop smiling. I was full of joy and happiness. I will always remember this feeling. I enjoyed it so much.

What has been your greatest challenge?

I dont think I ever had a real challenge to deal with.

What advice would you give to other dancers?

Always enjoy and love what you do. Never compare yourself to others. Stay focused on you. Believe in your self and you will be able to do anything you want.
