Introducing Ana Maria Gergely, English National Ballet School student

Ana Maria is currently a student at English National Ballet School after studying at the prestigious State Ballet School of Berlin.

Originally from Romania, Ana Maria began her studies at the age of four at the Bucharest National Opera, progressing at the age of 11 to the Romanian State Ballet School, which partners with the Ballet National Opera.

Now 16 years old, Ana Maria joined the State Ballet School of Berlin in 2011 and is currently touring around Germany performing classics such as Le Corsaire. She also studied choreography which has influenced her approach to dance.

“I want to say something to the audience”, explained Ana Maria. “I admire dancers who send a kind of vibration through the audience. I appreciate this more than a nice over-stretched foot or a hyper-extension and this is how I dance”.

Ana Maria is a passionate, dedicated and an emotional dancer and a rising star with ambitions to become a professional ballet dancer with a leading company. Already she has achieved prestigious awards over the last two years, including Gold and First Prizes.

Ana Maria’s photos are stunning and convey the emotion and tell a story through each picture, just as she strives to in her performances.
