Meet the Lecturers

Junor Souza

Junor start to dance when he was 7 years old, in Brazil - Rio de Janeiro. After 5 years he moved to a new school Escola de Dança Alice Arja where he spent 9 years training in the  Vaganova method (classical ballet), plus jazz, tap, contemporary and other styles of dance. 

When I was 15 years old I started to think about leaving Brazil, entering both national and international competitions. By 16 I was the winner of a competition in Cordoba, Argentina called Danzameria and was selected to represent South America at the Prix de Lausanne competition. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the final but I was offered many scholarships for different ballet schools in Europe including English National Ballet school where my 3 years of study in the UK began.

After six months of my first year at ENB School, the Artistic Director decided to put me into my second year. From my 2nd and 3rd year I was studying at the school whilst also working with the English National Ballet Company. 

In my final year travelling with both the school and the company, I was offered a contract to join the ENB company as an artist. Since than I have been in the company for 14 years going through different ranks / promotions. I am currently first soloist dancing different roles from classical to contemporary and working with many choreographers such as William Forsythe, Ben Stevenson, Derek Dean, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and Liam Scarlett.
