What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?
It wasn’t easy. I actually made a video that was inspired by the complications of trying to dance during the pandemic’s shelter in place orders. “Tour de Marley” was a collaboration with a few of the artists of SFB and one of the projects I kept myself busy with during the shelter in place orders of Covid-19.
When you have downtime from productions, what do you do to relax?
I love to bike. Biking is definitely one of my favorite hobbies outside of the ballet.
