The qualities I look for in a dancer:
Someone who has a good use of their plie- a good earthbound quality.
My work has a sense of theater, so I look for dancers who have a natural acting ability.
They can NOT be afraid to become a character.
Someone who has a great energy about them.
The rehearsal space is very sensitive.
Attitudes- not welcome!
I cannot tolerate:
pettiness, rudeness, lateness, and laziness
The most influential person in my life is:
I don't know where I'd be without her
The thing I love about New York:
that my family is here.
I was born and raised in Queens!
What I wish I could change:
Nothing, because all the events that have happened in my life have brought me to this very place.
I am enthusiastic about:
Our generation really supporting each other. It's such a great feeling!
