Q&A

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

I’ve always admired the strong and playful character of Kitri in Don Quixote. I’ve danced some of the variations from the ballet and I think it really defines me as a person.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

My favorite is the one I wore for Piano Concerto from Shostakovich Trilogy. It’s a unitard—the front part is blue and the back is maroon—creating a great illusion for the audience.

I LOVE SAN FRANCISCO BECAUSE…

It’s a multicultural city, and the arts scene is very diverse. It’s also very fun to go out to eat here because there’s so much to choose from!
