Q: HOW DID YOU BECOME A DANCER? AND WHEN DID YOU START DANCING?
A: I became a dancer after being forced into a ballet class around age 10 or 11 as part of my gymnastics class. Later that year I was part of a local production of The Nutcracker and switched to dancing full time. After that I was off!
Q: what do you enjoy most about being a dancer?
A: I love sharing dance with others. That could be through live performance or through conversation. I think dance is very powerful, and I love demonstrating that.
Q: Do you have hobbies or special interests? If so, what are they and what do you enjoy about them?
A: I love music. I play piano and trombone. I enjoy playing music because it enhances my dancing but also exists outside of it. It’s a hobby I can retreat to.
Q: What do you enjoy most about Kc? Why?
A: I love the food—I’m not used to this many sources of good barbecue.
