How did you get started with ballet? I can’t remember not doing ballet. I started as soon as I could walk, but even before I started it my aunt and my mom’s mom did it before me.
Tell me why you love ballet. Even though it started with ballet, I’m now taking 7 different types of dance 5 or 6 nights a week. That kind of commitment, you either have to be all for it or not. There’s no in between. The second I walk into the studio, which is a second home, I drop my bag and any stress or problems by the door. It makes me forget about everything, which is why I love it so much.
What ’s your favorite performance? Wow, favorite performance? That’s hard, since there’s been so many, even with the end of the year performance at this giant Civic Center coming up. The best performances for me are always the ones in our small, leaky studio. Alice In Wonderland was by far my all time favorite in the studio. The months, the sweat and hard work that went into it made it ten times more enjoyable in the end.
Do you have a dream or a goal as a pertain to ballet? If I am being completely honest, I still have no idea what I want to do with my life after college. But no matter what I do, I know it will involve dance. I’ve always wanted to be apart of a company. Traveling and dancing. It’d be everything I’ve ever wanted.
