Greta was born and grew up in Oxford, and started dancing at the young age of 3 at her local dance school. At 13 she won a place at the Royal Ballet School in London where she studied and graduated in 2007. During her time at the Royal Ballet School Greta danced with the Royal Ballet in ballets such at The Nutcracker, Sylvia, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty as well as annual performances and special events such as a gala performance at Buckingham Palace.

During her professional career Greta danced with Dortmund Ballet Theatre and Corella Ballet and her commercial credits are the Pilates training video ‘Turning Out Dancers’ with Dreas Reyneke and the short dance film ‘Autumn Whirl’ with Zsolti Szabo.

Greta is currently working as a dance and fitness teacher in the London and Reading areas.
