Jessica Carter

Ballet Student and Teaching Assistant

  • Location: London

Hello and welcome to my hiive page!

My name is Jessica Carter, I'm based in London and I am a dance student training mainly in Russian-method classical ballet. I am also a blogger of all things dance, otherwise known as The Blogging Ballerina.

I grew up in Berkshire and trained locally in ballet. I spent some time at The Creative Academy in Slough, trying some other styles of dance and expanding my performance experience, before moving to London to train at The London Russian Ballet School.

I am currently working as a teaching assistant to support my training, and as part of this I teach ballet to secondary-aged children from my school in Hackney in a free after-school programme.

I run my blog alongside these activities to document my journey in the ballet world, having come to the art form much later than most, and also to provide fun and educational content to all dancers and dance-lovers. My goal is to have a career as a professional dancer, and to continue my blog so that I can inspire others who have faced obstacles on the path to their dreams.

Being a dance student, I am striving to develop myself as an artist, so as part of that I am open to opportunities to learn, observe and try new things. I am always excited experience the work of other artists and to collaborate so please do contact me if you wish. If you want to see more of my work, please take the time to browse the rest of my page here where you will see some of my online portfolio as well as links to my blog, social media pages and YouTube channel.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page!
