Teaching Ballet to Disadvantaged Children on a voluntary placement in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

         

Rio is such a vibrant and beautiful city, the people are so welcoming; therefore I wasn't nervous for long. Everyone at made me feel at home and it was a brilliant experience.

I really couldn't have asked for a better bunch of kids! The children are so much fun and very talented, I became very close to them all and I miss them very much! A lot of the families there don't have much when it comes to material things, but their culture and lively personalities make up for that! The Ballet school is a great organisation, the children enjoy every day there! I suppose it is like an escape for them!

My Portuguese was quite poor and so was the kid's English therefore at times it was difficult to communicate, however by the second week we were all finding it much easier. The way in which the Ballet classes were run/taught was quite different to my Ballet classes in Scotland because here in the UK Ballet is all about discipline and in Rio it was all about having fun, which at the end of the day is more important!

I have never met such happy people in all my life, Carioca's love to sing and dance and this for me was a great thing to experience.

Being by myself was at times difficult, but I really wouldn't change my experience for the world! The people at my hotel, Fabio, Kayla and everyone at the Ballet school were all like my own little family! I would definitely recommend a trip out to Rio and volunteering somewhere like this, it really was the best time of my life!

Thank you to everyone who made my trip such an enjoyable and successful one!
