Lily Deveney

Born in Dublin, Lily trained with Lauren Speirs and was a member of the Irish National Youth Ballet.

She then accepted a place in Central School of Ballet, London, where she currently trains.

During her time in the Irish National Youth Ballet, she performed numerous roles such as Snow Queen and Lead Mirliton in Nutcracker (Killian O’Callaghan) and various roles in Snow White (Stephen Brennan) and Cinderella (Killian O’Callaghan).

Lily joined Ballet Ireland as a ‘Lady in Waiting’ during their performances of Swan Lake in the Gaiety Theatre. At Central School of Ballet, Lily has enjoyed getting the opportunity to train in a variety of styles such as classical ballet, contemporary (Graham and Cunningham techniques), improvisation, Flamenco, jazz and musical theatre. She has performed in their annual summer shows, performing pieces choreographed especially for the students by renowned choreographers and tutors such as Resmi Malko, Susan Kempster, Leanne King and Julia Ellis.

Lily was fortunate to get the opportunity to perform in the recent Unite for Ukraine Gala in Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London bringing together the top vocational dance schools from across the United Kingdom in an effort to raise funds for aid in Ukraine. Here, Lily was a dancer in the Flamenco piece ‘Bolero’ originally choreographed by Sherill Wexler and later restaged by Emma Flett.
