Q & A
What is your favourite movie?
Hands down Billy Elliot, watching it when I was growing up literally changed my life and my goals. Every time I watch it now, it makes me feel something new.
What is your favourite book?
Christopher Isherwood’s A Single Man.
How did you first get into dance?
I started dancing when I was in high school. I attended a performing arts high school where I was encouraged to act, sing and dance. I feel in love with movement when I was in grade 10 and from there it was a spring-board into a whole new life.
What keeps you dancing?
I dance because it makes me feel.
I hope to graduate university with my BFA in Dance and a Bachelor of Education to teach and inspire a younger generation of dancers.
