- San Francisco Ballet Choreographic Fellowship, June 2018–June 2020.
What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?
I used the time during lockdown to choreograph my piece Her Gambit on the Trainees. The more I choreographed, the more I was eager to get back into the studios and back on our Opera House stage.
What are some of your favorite roles or ballets you've danced while at SF Ballet?
I’ve had many favorite ballets that I’ve performed in as both a company member and as a student. Most of them are the story ballets that our company has staged. The list includes Cinderella, Don Quixote, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
