At a zoo. I enjoy seeing all the animals and wish I could pet them all.

Oh, that’s a good question. A velociraptor.
Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about it/them!
A Burmese cat named Noodles and an English bulldog named Pepper.
What genre of dance is your favorite? Why?
Jazz. It’s fun, alive, and allows me to express myself.
What is your favorite full length ballet/variation/performance? Why?
My favorite variation is harlequinade. It’s simply so much fun to watch.
Why do you dance?
I’m not good at sports (and really don’t enjoy them). Dance allows me to express my feelings and I’ve enjoyed watching old clips to see how my friends and I have grown as artists.
If you wear pointe shoes, what kind do you wear? If not pointe shoes, what kind of flat shoes do you prefer?
What other jobs/activities/talents/passions do you pursue?
I play piano but dance is life.
What's a fun fact about you that tends to surprise people?
Chickens are my favorite animal… also, I can play a variety of musical instruments.
What are you looking forward to this season with Ballet Embody?
