Q&A

WHAT BALLET OR ROLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO DANCE BUT HAVEN'T YET? WHY?

Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments. I fell in love with it the first time I saw SF Ballet perform the work. I hope I get to do it someday.

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING I ENJOY...

Playing guitar.

IF I WEREN'T A DANCER I'D BE...

A singer.
