BBC Young Dancer | Elisabeth Mulenga
6th May 2022
Introducing our penultimate BBC Young Dancer 2022 finalist, Elisabeth Mulenga.
Elisabeth describes the experience of being part of BBC Young Dancer as “more than anything full of joy and growth.” The greatest thing about our students becoming involved in opportunities like these is exactly for these moments of extra learning and joyfulness. We are so proud of Elisabeth for using BBC Young Dancer as a way to further her exploration of dance.
She continues “Competing without categories alongside dancers of different genres truly widened my perspective on my creative practice beyond the boundaries and narratives of any one genre or dance culture. I would like to thank the staff at Rambert School who have supported my questioning and explorations with so much love throughout the past year. I have so much gratitude for the other nine dancers and all the mentors, who always offered so much of themselves.”
The next steps for Elisabeth seem clearer as she says “This process has revealed the variety of ways a career in dance and the arts can look like. I feel even more excited for what lies ahead and empowered to create however I wish.” We are excited to see what that will become after we enjoy one more year with her studying at Rambert School.
