Now in her fifth season with Kansas City Ballet, Company Dancer Whitney Huell, opens up about her interests.

Q: TELL US WHY YOU BECAME A DANCER.

A: I started dancing after seeing my older sister perform in a recital. When I took my first ballet class I was hooked. I loved learning to do new and challenging movements and working to improve them every class. The constant work to improve steps intrigued me.

Q: WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING A PROFESSIONAL DANCER?

A: Being a professional dancer is a blessing because we get to pursue our passion of dance in the form of a job. Doing what you love for a living is a wonderful feeling. There are definitely ups and downs within one’s career but this profession is an exciting one.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

A: Food! I love dining out. I am very frugal but it is very hard for me to turn down a restaurant invitation.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SNACK?

A: My favorite snacks during a rehearsal day are fruit strips. They are tasty, sweet and give you a bit of a sugar boost. I like the strawberry and peach flavors from Whole Foods.

Q: WHAT WAS THE BEST DANCING OR LIFE ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED AND WHY?

A: Don’t compare yourself to others. Being the best dancer you can be is the goal. I think this is important and has helped me grow as an artist.
