Sweaty Betty blog: Collaboration
Empowering Women Through Fitness
As part of our collaboration with the English National Ballet, Sweaty Betty got a chance to catch up with Artistic Director Tamara Rojo. We asked questions and she answered. Here's what we learned.
Tell us about your background with dancing from how you began to where you are today.
When I was 19 years old, I won the gold medal at the Paris International Dance competition, which was judged by some of the most important figures in the dance world. Despite having performed in many competitions, this was the first time that I was recognised as an up-and-coming talent. Two years later I was offered my first contract as a principal dancer with Scottish Ballet.

Every pair of FitFlop shoes incorporates biomechanically engineered and ergonomically optimised multi-density midsoles, so the wearer not only looks fabulous but feels fantastic. Which might explain why millions of loyal customers keep coming back for more.
