HER PASSION FOR BALLET STARTED EARLY
Although she was enrolled to music classes at the kindergarten, she used to sneak into dancing classes. Her teachers, noticing this, called and suggested her mom to send her daughter to ballet classes. However, her mom thought that music classes were better for her because of the belief that an incorrect ballet training at an early age may cause problems later on life which may not be solved again. Despite this belief, her parents realized in time that her passion for ballet was growing bigger. Eventually they started searching for a special institution where she could get a ballet training.
ISTANBUL STATE OPERA AND BALLET YEARS
The first step towards a ballet training was taken when they met Gülen Andak who organized the year end ceremonies at the Isik Highschool Beyza was attending. After 1.5 years training at Gülen Andak's Ballet School, Beyza Sekerci took the entrance exams for Children's Ballet of Istanbul State Opera and Ballet in October, 1995 and she succeeded to be one of the forty children who passed the exam. She started to work as a paid Child Ballet Dancer at Istanbul State Opera. Her first professional dancing experience on the stage was with the Cinderella musical.
