What is your favorite thing about the Dayton Ballet?
My favorite thing about Dayton Ballet is the variety. All of our performances throughout the year bring something new, innovative, and fresh while also tying in the classics we all know and love.

Favorite role or costume so far?
My favorite role thus far has been Arabian in the nutcracker. It has been a dream role of mine since I was a little girl.

What organizations have you previously danced with?
I have danced with Cocodaco Dance Project, a contemporary company in Evanston, IL

Do you have any pre-concert rituals or routines?
The pre-concert ritual I have is to take a couple deep breaths before entering the stage. It helps calm my nerves and adrenaline building up.

What is your favorite Dayton Ballet memory?
My favorite memory at the Dayton Ballet was when we performed Gerald Aprino’s Light Rain! The music for light rain was a unique East-West fusion with lots of intricate rhythms. The choreography and costumes were both sensual and different. Everyone from the dancers to the audience were having fun!
