When New Adventures dancer Reece Causton came to work with the Moorland Ballet students. He kindly took the time to answer some questions from hard hitting journalist, year 7 student Emily Umpleby.

Why do you dance?

I love music and have always liked to dance too it. I enjoy exploring how your body can move and love the creativity of dance.

Where did you train?

I first trained at Footlights Performing Arts and started with drama. I would constantly be looking through the studio windows to watch the dancers. At the age of 16 I took my first dance classes and began my dance journey. I auditioned for the Central School of Ballet and started the associate programme before taking up a place full time.

When did you join New Adventures?

I joined New Adventures in 2013.

What was your favourite production to be part of with New Adventures?

My favourite production was Swan Lake. It was the first ballet I danced with New Adventures and was a huge inspiration for me.

What has been the highlight of your career?

Playing the role of Boris from The Red Shoes has been a real highlight. I took over from the esteemed Adam Cooper to complete the Red Shoes tour.

Do you have any pets?

No, I don’t have any pets, but I really want to get a cat!

What is your favourite meal?

As a teenager my favourite meal was spaghetti Bolognaise, but now it’s Fish & Chips!

We look forward to welcoming Reece back into Moorland School later in the year and will make sure Fish and chips are on the menu that day!
