Sexy Floorwork with Aurora Nova

When did you start dancing?

I started ballet when I was 17 and started my first part time job. Then I took ballet classes on and off in my twenties in-between having three children and working. I loved starting ballet even though I was very behind everyone my age, in time I even got some pointe shoes and got to perform in the student show. 
I started going to Aurora’s classes in 2021 and have been going regularly since. I had been wanting to start burlesque classes and was thrilled when I found one. I keep going to class because I really enjoy learning all the new dances and I love the variety.

What is your favourite style of dance and why?

I really enjoy burlesque because you can incorporate any style and make something unique. I find it gives me something creative to focus my mind on.

Who inspires you to dance and why?

I encourage my children to pursue their hobbies and spend time driving them to these. It is nice that on a Wednesday I get to enjoy a hobby of my own. Having my own dance class helps me to feel like I am setting a good example and demonstrating that hard work pays off. I truly believe that dancing gives me the head space that I need to be a better parent.

Well Done Sophie! 🙂
