What's your favorite costume? Why?
My favorite costume would be the dresses from Vienna Waltzes. I've never worn it, but they are simply gorgeous gowns!
What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?
Performing Scotch Girl in Scotch Symphony. I was a young dancer in the Company and really wanted to perform the role, so I worked incredibly hard and got the chance to perform. It was one of my first bigger roles and I had the best time on stage!
What's your perfect day?
My perfect day would be waking up refreshed after a full night’s sleep and enjoying a leisurely breakfast out, followed by a long hike along the coast, and then watching the sunset.
