My name is Lydia England, and I was chosen by Sandy’s Dancewear @sandys_dancewear to be a Nikolay influencer. I am currently training under Yulia Ilina @yulia_ilina_ballet at Next Step Dance Performing Arts Center @nsdpac. Prior to this year, I was a trainee with Avant Chamber Ballet and a soloist in the Ensemble company at Texas Ballet Theater.
I have attended the Paris Opera Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Rock and Ballet West all on scholarship. At YAGP, my Pas de deux, Grand Pas Classique, placed in the Top 3 at the Kansas City Regionals. Also, I have placed in the Top 12 and Top 24, in the Tulsa and Dallas YAGP regionals.
I have had the opportunity to train under many amazing mentors including Elisabeth Platel, Michele Gifford @mgifford1970 , and Yulia Ilina.
