My name is Mimi Swinton. I am a 15 year old British/Australian Citizen and have been raised in Sydney, with my older sister, by my Mum.
I started dancing when I was 2 and when I dance I feel awakened, powerful and magical as though I am in another world. Dancing has given me discipline and strength that I carry through all areas of my life.
I have been a member of the Australian Ballet's Interstate Training Program for 5 years and danced under the tutelage of Vicki Attard (ex-Principal of the Australian Ballet and now Houston Ballet Director) and currently under Hilary Kaplan & Archibald McKenzie at Alegria Dance Studio, Sydney.
Following a “one to one” global audition by Robert Parker, Artistic Director of Ballet for the world reknowned Elmhurst Ballet School in England, I have now been offered one of two full time places at Elmhurst in September 2017 https://www.elmhurstdance.co.uk/
However, in order for me to be able to go to England and follow my dream, I need to raise funds to pay the fees, which my Mum can`t fully afford. I am asking everyone to please dig deep and find a few pounds or dollars and share in the vision in creating the future of the next generation of ballet dancers in the world.
I am currently proud to be an official Bloch Australia Ambassador. I was nominated 'Bloch Artiste' for 2017: http://www.bloch.com.au/content/207-blochartiste.
I wear the Bloch brand with honour and pride and continue to help them build their brand as I embody the essence of Bloch with elegance, class and integrity.
Please share this on your social media with someone else that may like to help my big dream become my reality.
Thank you! xx Mimi xx
