Georgina Roberts

Principal Lecturer of Ballet

Georgina began dancing at the age of three before attending the Harlequin Stage school in Worcester until she was eleven. Having been offered a place at the Royal Ballet School, she trained at White Lodge before moving to the Upper School where she graduated in 2002.

After graduation, Georgina joined Northern Ballet where she rose through the company to perform her first principal role at the age of twenty-one. She went on to become one of the company’s leading dancers, taking on many principal roles including Odila (Swan lake), the Sugar Plum Fairy (Nutcracker), Constance (The Three Musketeers), Lucy (Dracula), Cathy (Wuthering Heights), Lucie (A Tale of two Cities) and many more. She also worked closely with company director and choreographer David Nixon to create the roles of Ophelia in Hamlet and Aurora in A Sleeping Beauty Tale.

Georgina retired from Northern Ballet in 2012 in order to pursue a teaching career. She initially returned to the Royal Ballet school to complete the Professional Dancers Teachers Course and graduated with distinction. At the same time, Georgina also completed the Alan Herdman Pilates Teachers Training Course. From there she went on to teach on both of Northern Ballet’s Graduate Training and Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) courses, while also teaching at the English National Ballet School and at Alan Herdman’s Pilates Studio in London. In 2017, Georgina moved to the Rambert School as a ballet teacher where she thoroughly enjoyed developing her experience in the higher education sector.

Georgina is really excited to be joining Performers College Birmingham and is looking forward to welcoming the next generation of young dancers.
