Favorite quote: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~Maya Angelou

Favorite role: Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments. I was honored to be dancing such a challenging and iconic ballet, and I loved the amazing score by Paul Hindemith.

Favorite costume: Sir Frederick Ashton’s Rhapsody. The costumes are elegant and I enjoyed having the opportunity to wear costumes from the Royal Ballet.

Fun fact: Cats are my favorite animal.
