Medhi Angot | DANCER
Ballet - I love ballet because it has to be precise and requires a lot of discipline. My favourite ballet is "La Bayadere" by Rudolph Nureyev.
Collect(ive) - I don't collect anything as such, but I like to collect beautiful memories.
Aotearoa - My favourite place in Aotearoa; I have yet to discover it. There are still a lot of places I haven't been. I'd really like to go to Waiheke Island and Coromandel.
Home - I am from Lamballe, a small city in Brittany in FRANCE!
Training - I trained at the Paris Opera Ballet School from 1996 until 2003. My first ballet teacher thought that I was talented enough to audition for the Paris Opera Ballet School and that I would learn much more in Paris.
Highlights - Dancing my first Principal role in a full length ballet. It was Basilio in Don Quixote. I had just turned 23, and when I took a bow after my first show, I knew that dancing as a Principal was what I wanted to do.
Favourite Jam - I love singing! And strawberry jam.
