  • Seasons with Charlotte Ballet II: 1
  • Favorite movie: The entire “Star Wars” saga

  • What “powers” you as a dancer?: “The feeling of effortlessness that I experience on stage is what drives me in the studio to work hard. The amazing feeling of being suspended and right on balance or frozen still in the air is a freedom that I work for everyday in the studio.”
