WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF DANCE?

My favourite memory of dance is the day I booked my first professional job. I’ll never forget where I was and the feeling when I read that email. I felt like all the years of hard work were starting to be put into motion! 

 

WHAT DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR DANCE BAG?

It changes every day! Every job, rehearsal and class require different things! But I never leave home without a roller and a pressure point ball!  They are my life savers. 

 

WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING THING ABOUT DANCE?

For me it’s definitely trying to not be too self critical. I am the type of person who will push themselves to the limit to improve and not want to slow down. Dancers are always striving to improve and be better but sometimes you have to learn to give yourself credit for where you’re at right now! 

 

WHAT HAS DANCE TAUGHT YOU ABOUT LIFE?

That resilience is one of the most important traits a dancer needs. After having some major injuries, being resilient through my recovery was so important. This also applies when getting a ‘NO’ from an audition. I don’t think I would’ve been able to continue dancing professionally if it wasn’t for having resilience from a young age. 

DESCRIBE YOUR DANCE TEACHING IN 3 WORDS.

Fun. Focused. Encouraging.
