“It is a truth universally acknowledged… “

..that anyone who has something to say, must write a blog.

If there is one woman, who knows how to write an introduction, it’s Jane Austen. Unfortunately, I’m not Jane Austen, I’m not a literature heroine and I haven’t met Mr.Darcy. Nevertheless, my name is Suzan. 

I am a classical ballet dancer with the Wiener Staatsballett (Vienna State Opera) and I am very happy to call Vienna home. Well, second home; my true home being South Africa. I am originally from Western Cape, South Africa. Although I only spent a short time of my childhood there, I still proudly consider myself South African and I will always consider it ‘Home’. 

I spent most of my ‘growing-up’ years in the UK and completed 6 years of intensive training at The Royal Ballet School in London. Moving to Vienna was a big step into the ‘grownup’ world; exciting, daunting and scary at times. So I did what any smart person would do. I got a dog. A lovable companion to make you smile despite life’s little dramas.

This is my page to show and tell and to share some of my opinions and perspectives.  I take inspiration from the people around me and my own personal experiences.  I am no expert in life, and hopefully I never will be. We have to stay curious, humble, and inquisitive in this life and learn to flow with the unpredictable waves of life. You may just discover life’s beautiful serendipities.  And after all…who enjoys reading a predictable novel?

For now, this is all you need to know.


And that we will live happily ever after.
