Claire fell in love with the magic of being on stage at the very young age of 2 1/2, and was drawn in by the incredible feeling of peace and self expression the stage offers, and the 'beautiful intimacy of performing'. She has done ballet all her life, and attended the Central School of Ballet. Ballet is her big passion; being the springboard for all types of dance, as well as being a beautiful artform in its own right, she says. Between auditions she loves to teach, and has recently qualified as a personal trainer. 'Nurturing children is one of the things I love about teaching, and seeing each child grow is truly a privilege.'
