Audrey Freeman TPA Graduate


Audrey Freeman commenced as a part time student with the Tanya Pearson Academy juggling her busy classical ballet training with her gymnastics training. Deciding that she wanted to pursue a career in classical ballet, Audrey reduced her gymnastics commitments in order to focus more on ballet and at the age of 13 she transitioned from the part time to full time program where she thrived on the increased ballet training, opportunities to perform and staying on top of her academic studies.

Audrey competed regularly in Eisteddfods and competitions where she continued to perfect her stage presence and nurture her love of the stage. She was accepted 2 years in a row into the Youth America Grand Prix NY Finals – twice being a Grand Finalist and in 2017 was the outright winner of the YAGP Paris.

In January 2018 Audrey competed in the prestigious Prix de Lausanne Competition and was offered a place to the Royal Ballet School where she commenced in September 2018, being one of the youngest accepted into the Royal Ballet School Upper School at 15yrs.
