What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?

I was inspired to continue dancing by the desire to create beauty in a terrifying world as well as the opportunity to break down my technique in order to come back an even better dancer than before.

Do you identify with a particular community you would like to share?

Indigenous Mayan

What do you like to do for fun in San Francisco?

Swim in the Bay and get excellent coffee and pastries afterwards!

What are some of your favorite roles or ballets you've danced while at SF Ballet?

Definitely dancing the Yellow boys in Prism was a wonderful experience to share with my friends. I also really love doing Rat King in The Nutcracker and the Court Couples in Cinderella!

What are you the most proud of?

I’m proud of my heritage, my work ethic, my passion for what I love, and my principles.
