What's your favorite costume? Why?
Blue Boy in Jerome Robbins’ Dances at a Gathering. Blue is my favorite color and the costume reflects my own personal style: classic and simple.
What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?
I don't have a moment that I'm most proud of as a dancer, but every time there’s a curtain call— especially after a difficult ballet—I try to appreciate the work I've put in to come this far. Knowing how far I've come and how far I have yet to go makes me proud and inspires me to keep growing and evolving as an artist.
What can always make you laugh?
My co-workers. I am lucky to be surrounded by such funny and interesting characters!
