Favorite quote: “Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” ~Jennifer Lee
Favorite role: It’s a tie between Russian Girl in Serenade and the Jealous Sister in Las Hermanas. Russian Girl was such a dream role with some of the best music and choreography in neoclassical ballet, and I loved the challenge of portraying a complex story in Las Hermanas.
Favorite costume: The ballroom costumes from Ashton’s Apparitions. They were unique to each dancer and I think is the closest I’ll get to feeling like a Disney princess!
Fun fact: I have two sets of twins in my family, I have a twin brother and identical twin sisters!
