What do you believe about ballet? Or why were you drawn to be a part of Ballet Idaho?

I believe that ballet has an incredible power and energy to it. The experience of watching ballet is sometimes difficult to articulate, because what you’re viewing is so individual and special to everyone in the audience.

 

If we were to dance to any song, which one would you choose?

Call of Silence by Hiroyuki Sawano. The song is incredibly calming and cathartic.
