Favorite quote:If you can dream it you can do it” ~Tom Fitzgerald

Favorite role: Claire De Lune. It’s a beautiful solo. I love contemporary. I performed it during the pandemic (Digital Program). It gave me the chance to show the audience who Ivan is!

Favorite costume: Hilarion from Giselle! I personally think it’s a beautiful costume! Super well made and comfortable!

Fun fact: I love singing as much as  I love dancing! I have a little recording studio at home!
