Q&A

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

I love the green romantic tutus in Emeralds because they move so elegantly with Balanchine's sweeping choreography. Long tulle skirts always make me feel very “ballerina.”

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

After performing Liturgy by Christopher Wheeldon with my good friend and partner Lorin Mathis—that experience was the most confident and free I've ever felt onstage.

WHAT'S YOUR PERFECT DAY?

One in which I sleep well, eat well, laugh with friends, dance something I love, see something inspiring, and spend time in nature.
