Hi! My name is Alícia, and I am from Porto Alegre, Brazil. I have been dancing for nearly as long as I can walk, and throughout my Gap Year, I will be pursuing my dream of dancing ballet pre-professionally and professionally around Europe. I have recently spent two weeks in Stockholm at the Royal Swedish Ballet School, and I am excited to visit other countries soon to dance. Beginning in January, I will spend three months living in Germany as a part of Ballet Dortmund Junior Company. I am excited to share my year with you!
