Q&A

What ballet or role would you like to dance but haven't yet?

Lady of the Camellias, Swan Lake, and Carmen because they each have a large acting component and lots of drama.

When you have downtime from productions, what do you do to relax?

I love take hot bath do my skincare routine and spent time with my cat Jerry.

What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?

I was so shocked and proud when I was chosen to do Snow Queen during my first year at SF Ballet and when I got promoted to soloist in 2016.

When I'm not working, I enjoy...

Traveling to beautiful places.
