Q&A

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

Arabian from Nutcracker. I like the special Arabian makeup, and the hat is very detailed and pretty.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

Making the audience happy and excited at the end of a ballet because that's what we are here for.

IF I WEREN'T A DANCER I'D BE...

A makeup artist.
