I am thrilled to be collaborating with Anajli as their new ‘Company Champion’ as they step into this next exiting phase of development. Inclusivity, visibility and diversity is an integral part of our sector growth and I believe Anjali is at the forefront of breaking down barriers for dance and disability. The company’s rigour, professionalism, artistic flair and integrity are all qualities of which we can learn from as we aim to grow into a more progressive and well rounded industry. My time working with Anjali has always been a rich and enlightening experience and something I deeply treasure as a developing dance artist. My contact with company continues to broaden my thinking, push my artistry and deepen my understanding. I am honoured to be a part Anajli’s bright and prosperous future and wish them the best of luck in their future ventures.
