What has your favorite role been? Why?
My favorite roles have been “Hilarion” in Giselle or “Bluebird” in The Sleeping Beauty. “Hilarion” is a deeply emotional role; it was beautiful to dive into his character in the love triangle of Giselle’s first act, and later feel the agony and physicality of his Act ll solo. “Bluebird” was physically challenging, pushing the limits of my own stamina and technique.

If you could meet anyone in the world, who would you meet?
Mikhail Baryshnikov or Lana Del Rey
