Q&A

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

I never got to be a Ladybug in Nutcracker...

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

I was pretty proud of my flying Willis Meet the Artist Interview. Not many people get to fly while on the job.

WHAT'S YOUR PERFECT DAY?

Road tripping with my mom in the passenger seat, Patsy Cline on the radio, and an ice cream cone in my hand.
