A Cool Place I Visited While Dancing
My Favorite Rehearsal Snack
My favorite is Soda (mist) and M&M (peanut)
Music I Warm Up To
I don't listen any special music. I listen to the noise of the space while I imagine the show.
Why do you dance?
Of course I like to dance. But it's more than that. Dance is a part of my life.
What do you love about dancing?
I can tell something to people without speaking - we don't need language.
I can be "me" when I'm dancing.
What's the hardest part of being a dancer?
Sometimes I can imagine what I want to do but my body can't do the movements right away. I have to practice over and over.
