ACROPAD ATHLETE

OPDA

MEET AIMEE: Hi I’m Aimee, I’m 15 years old and have been dancing for 7 years. I started out taking ballet and street dance lessons at OPDA, then as time went by added, contemporary, modern, acro, jazz, tap, commercial and stage school. At the age of 9 I was diagnosed with Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, this allows my joints to bend too much which damages my ligaments and tendons. I was told by the doctors to give up dancing to avoid injuring myself but this was something I just couldn’t do. So with the help of my amazing Osteo and support from my wonderful dance teachers at OPDA, I continued to get stronger and achieve my dreams. I have taken part in many shows with OPDA and love performing on stage.

I was honoured this year, to become a Head Girl of my Dance Academy and then get the fantastic opportunity to be chosen as an AcroPAD Athlete. I’m also now looking forward to starting my training with West End Elite.

WHAT'S IN YOUR DANCE BAG: All types of dance shoes, lots of bottles of water, Rock tape for my ankles, theraband, hair stuff and perfume.

FAVE ACRO MOVE: It would probably be my side ariel as this was one of my first ever tricks.

WHO IS YOUR HERO: I have lots, but I would have to say my dance teachers at OPDA would be at the top!

ON MY REST DAY: I don’t really have a rest day, but when I have some spare time I like to stretch, watch Netflix and train my dog.
