When did you start dancing? 4 years old
What’s your favorite kind of dance? Contemporary ballet (or just ballet)
What’s your teaching philosophy? Finding the joy and love of the art is above all the most important. Dance is a challenging field that requires hard work, dedication, and a great deal of love. I also believe in working safely for one’s own body. Although it is important to challenge and push oneself, a dancer’s body must come first.
What is your favorite ballet? Giselle
What are your goals for the future? To dance full time with a contemporary ballet company
What is your favorite music to crank in the car? Beyonce
What is your favorite cartoon character & why? Minnie Mouse, because she is sweet and super cute. She is nice to all, but she can also stand up for herself when she needs to.
What type of dance would you like to try? Ballroom dance. I have always loved how smooth and organized ballroom dancing looks. Everyone looks so elegant and pretty. Plus if I get to wear a really big dress, it would make everything perfect. 🙂
