What was a defining moment in your career?
I would definitely have to say the moment Adam W. McKinney promoted me onstage after my debut of “Aurora” in The Sleeping Beauty. To have that amount of support has already changed so much for me. And it’s only the beginning!

Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
I love going to New York City. I have spent so much time there, and I love taking classes there or going to see friends perform on Broadway.

Who would play you in a movie?
Blake Lively
