Q: HOW DID YOU BECOME A DANCER? AND WHEN DID YOU START DANCING?

A: My parents put me in dance classes when I was 3 years old. They said when I came off stage after my first recital that I said, “I want to do this forever!”

Q: what do you enjoy most about being a dancer?

A: Absolutely everything! I love the endless strive for perfection, and the satisfying feeling when I accomplish something—whether that be a performance, or gaining an inch of flexibility.

Q: What is something most people wouldn’t know about you?

A: I’m a total nerd. I love math and science. My favorite movies, TV shows and books are Sci-Fi themed and futuristic. I love Star Trek and Star Wars, Tron, etc. Also, SpongeBob is the best show ever.

Q: If you have an unexpected hour free, what would be your ideal way to spend it and why?

A: If I have an hour free while I’m at work, I’ll spend it stretching and snacking. If I’m at home with an hour free, I’ll plop down on the couch and watch my current favorite Netflix show.
