Favorite Place to Be
Honestly... in my bed or ballet class.
If you were a dinosaur, what kind would you be?
Do you have any pets?
My plants are my pets.
Tell us about your dance background and training.
I started dancing when I was four and never stopped. I went to Towson University for my BFA in Dance Performance and Choreography. I have trained at intensives with Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Koresh Dance Company, and Christopher K Morgan & Artists. I've performed with Charm City Ballet from 2015 to present, and this is my second season with Ballet Embody!
What genre of dance is your favorite? Why?
Contemporary Ballet is my favorite because I love the discipline and structure of ballet with the creativity of contemporary.
What's your favorite full length ballet/performance/variation? Why?
Marianela Nunez performing Gamzatti in La Bayadere. I learned and performed this variation at a summer intensive in high school, and loved it. Nunez is my favorite ballerina of all time.
Why do you dance?
I grew up super shy, and dance was a way I could express myself, or even be someone else. Now I just need it.
If you wear pointe shoes, what kind do you wear?
What other jobs/activities/talents/passions do you pursue?
I love baking, going home for family dinners, rewatching Greys Anatomy, and taking care of my plants #plantmom
What are you looking forward to this season with Ballet Embody?
