Q&A

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

Onegin: the male principal role.

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

Opening night of Balanchine's The Four Temperaments. After performing our section, we were so surprised by the thunderous applause because it had been so long since we performed it in front of an audience. I can remember everyone’s faces as we came off-stage—so energized by the audience's enthusiasm.

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

A graduate of the Stanford class of 2017. I was accepted my senior year of high school but deferred to study in the school at SF Ballet and then turned them down when I joined the Company.
