Q&A

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

The men's Classical Symphony (Possokhov) costumes designed by Sandra Woodall might be the most flattering and comfortable things I've worn on stage.

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

I feel it’s hard for dancers to feel personally proud of their work. I feel most proud when our Company collectively pulls off a hard tour, or puts together a full-length ballet that we all care about.

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

A dance maker, I'd hope. I guess I caught the ballet bug...
