Why did you join the Ballet Idaho family?

I was initially drawn to be a part of Ballet Idaho because of my young daughter’s love of the art form. As my involvement has grown, I’ve developed a profound appreciation for the dancers’ athleticism, as well as their devotion to their craft.

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

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. Ballet provides an ethereal form of escapism — something many people can probably appreciate against the backdrop of COVID-19 and other issues in 2020.
