Why did you join the Ballet Idaho family?
I am so excited to be working with Ballet Idaho because not only do I love ballet, but I want to share my love of it with others. The best way for me to do that is to use my skills to help the company grow and reach more and more of the community. I’m excited to help keep this art form alive.
If we were to dance to any song, which one would you choose?
What a Wonderful World by Louis B. Armstrong. It’s my favorite song.
