Favorite quote:The only rule is don’t be boring, and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.” ~Paris Hilton

Favorite role: Melancholic in George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments. I loved this role because it challenged me technically and artistically. While the choreography never changed, I was able to find new intentions behind each movement every time I danced it. The role was constantly evolving and growing and I found that really exciting and fulfilling to dance.

Favorite costume: My favorite costume I’ve gotten to wear is the unitard in Kenneth MacMillan’s Elite Syncopations. I loved this costume because of all the bright colors and patterns. My big pink hat also added a fun touch.

Fun fact: A fun fact about me is that I love fashion. I hope to pursue a career involving fashion after I retire from dancing.
