What are some of your expectations for the upcoming year with MCB? I am expecting to grow and improve as a dancer, artist, and as a person. I have had such a positive experience thus far and am looking forward to seeing where the second half of the season takes me.
If you could invite anyone to dinner, living or deceased, who would it be and why? I would invite my Nana and Grandmom. They both passed away when I was young so it would be amazing to update them on the parts of my life they unfortunately missed.
Favorite indulgence: Yogo Luv :)
Craziest moment onstage: The craziest moment on stage happened during a scene in the Nutcracker when the girl dancing beside me fell and popped her knee out of her socket. She was screaming and crying due to the amount of pain she was in. Should we stop to help her or continue dancing? No one knew what do. Luckly the man playing the role of the Nutcracker swooped her into his arms and carried her off stage. The show went on!
What are some things you do in your free time? Relax, watch TV, read, cook, paint my nails.
Words to live by? "Don't Delay Gratification!"
