5 Minutes with Carla Doyle
How old were you when you started dancing? 8 years old
What or who inspired you to become a dancer? There isn’t really one thing or person that inspired me, I have just always loved the idea of dancing as a career.
What’s your favourite meal? Poached egg and avocado on multigrain toast – my breakfast everyday!
Is dancing challenging to you, or always fun? Definitely both!
What’s the funniest things that’s happened to you lately? Something hilarious happens every day in Full Time!
What’s the ultimate dance move? The hair flick!
Have you got any pre-performance rituals? Taking a moment to myself and staying really positive.
If you weren’t a dancer, what would you be? I don’t really know – I wanted to be a journalist for a bit in school so maybe that?
Favourite hobby? NOT DANCING. Going to the beach. It instantly makes me feel like I’m on holiday.
Favourite song? Anything and everything Beyoncé
Tell us the coolest thing about you.. umm I have red hair?
If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self? To stop caring what other people think of you and just embrace your individuality.
Do you have any pet peeves? Slow walkers
Last passport stamp? My first one will be LA when I go in September!
When times get tough, what keeps you going? I try my best to have an attitude that embraces the hard times in life as much as the easy moments, because that’s the moment where you have the opportunity to grow and change yourself.
Where do you want to retire? Anywhere where I am successful and happy.
Introvert or extravert? Probably a bit of both.
Any inspirational words for younger dancers out there? Dancing everyday is so fulfilling and you grow and learn so much about yourself in every aspect. If you love something, immerse yourself in it and don’t hold back due to fear.
What’s next for you? I want to dance as a career and I would love to travel as much as I can. So I’m doing everything I can to make that a reality!
