Fátima has been a dancer with the CNB since its formation, in 1977. As a soloist she danced all the company repertoire. In 2012 she was invited to become a rehearsal mistress.

The FaB Origins

My grandmother taught me to knit at the age of 6. As a child I used to hand knit scarves for everyone in the family and really enjoyed experimenting with different types of stitches and yarns.

When I joined the professional ballet company, I started knitting legwarmers and pants for myself and my dancer friends. Dancers need to keep their muscles warm, they also like to feel “pretty”, and I really wanted to make lots , but by hand it was all very slow…
One lucky day I was “introduced” to a knitting machine… A friend of mine was selling one second hand…
That was the beginning of FaB!
FaB as in my name initials (Fatima Brito) and also FABULOUS, as in… fabulous looking!
