Congratulations Sophie!

18 Apr 2017 / Tags: Exams

Sophie Rebecca has become one of the first transgender students to take an RAD exam and talk openly about the process.

Her story first came to light in Dance Gazette in 2016, in which she shared how her struggles with gender identity made it hard to fit in at a ballet school. She went on to find a place with an RAD teacher, and recently passed her Intermediate Foundation exam (with merit!).

Sophie is also featured in a new short film by the BBC.
