Wellington-born Alayna Ng has been dancing since the age of
four. Alayna graduated from the New Zealand School of Dance in
2006. Her performance in the school's graduation season was
described by Maggie Foyer, Dance Europe, as "feminine charm in a
crowd pleasing display of one-upmanship". While still a student,
Alayna performed with Royal New Zealand Ballet in The Meridian
Season of The Wedding and The TOWER Season of
Giselle, before joining the company in 2007.
In 2009, her performance in Dances from Napoli drew
praise from Dance Informa: "In the Pas de Six, Alayna Ng shone. Her
technique was faultless and her performance warm and generous." A
knee injury in 2010 gave her time to focus on her training as a
Pilates instructor and her love of sewing.
