Born to British-Turkish parents, Ayda spent the first years of her dance training at the State Conservatory of Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul, followed by five formative years at the school of the Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier. In her first engagement Ayda danced two seasons with the Ballet Chemnitz under the direction of Sabrina Sadowska. At the beginning of 2022, Ayda became a member of the first generation of Gauthier Dance JUNIORS. With the education format MOVES FOR FUTURE, she has since wowed countless children and young people, especially as the dying swan. Ayda is now looking forward to performing more on the Theaterhaus stages, when the second phase of the JUNIORS starts in the 2023/24 season.
