Favorite quote: “If you’re looking for something to turn up, why not start with your shirt sleeves?” and “What’s for you won’t go by you”. ~Traditional Scottish Proverb
Favorite role: There are too many to pick! Ashton’s Monotones II. The Leaves are Fading by Anthony Tudor. This gentle, elegiac ballet really surprised me and stays in my mind. Emeralds is special for me too.
Favorite costume: The tunics designed by Karinska for the men in both Emeralds and Diamonds by George Balanchine. They’re wonderfully cut, stunningly decorated and make you feel beautiful.
Fun fact: I am an identical twin.
