I would like to introduce Marina Bull – A Dancer Profile.  I first met Marina as one of my ‘My Pointe’ and open class students.  Marina Bull is one of the most tenacious and driven dancers I know, she is willing to tackle anything head on no matter what the consequences may be.  From a teacher’s perspective, I find these qualities to be utterly inspiring and unfortunately can’t be taught, although a wonderful example for all to witness.  I applaud Marina for never taking ‘no’ for an answer, and congratulate her on her recent contract with Ballet Manila.
