Q&A

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

I love the third act officer costumes in Neumeier's The Little Mermaid because they look sharp and are extremely comfortable.

WHAT'S YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

Any time our audiences appreciate the hard work that goes into a performance and any time my family can come see me dance.

I LOVE SAN FRANCISCO BECAUSE...

Of my friends--they are my second family. Also, the city is beautiful.
