THE bright lights of the city that never sleeps are calling Ali Marcy.

The former Rockhampton girl is about to make a name for herself with New York-based Ajkun Ballet Theatre's Summer Trainee Program in July.

Ali, 18, started dance classes in Rockhampton when she was four and hasn't looked back.

Although she's feeling a little nervous about dancing in New York, Ali said she was looking forward to the challenge.

"I'm doing it purely for the experience," she said.

And if opportunities flow from that it would be a bonus, Ali said.

For the past few years she has been improving her skills in Sydney.

"As hard as (dancing) is, I feel very privileged to be able to do it and that my family have helped me," she said.
