At 19 years old Jaimie did an audition tour around Europe and was offered full-time places at four prestigious ballet and contemporary finishing schools. She took up a position at Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance in Munich in their 2nd year of the bachelor’s degree, however, after only 6 months suffered a career-ending injury.
