What is your favorite ballet?

Giselle because it has a lot of firsts for me. It was my first ballet. It was also the first ballet I performed with the company, and I also debuted as “Hilarion” as my first soloist role. In the Upper Room is my favorite contemporary ballet that I have performed.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I make kombucha, play with my cats, love to play board games and listen to records. My most recent favorite record is Donna Summer’s I Remember Yesterday.

What’s your perfect day?

Anything beach-related. A nice cold sub, some tanning, the salty smell. I love it!
