I am currently not on pointe but will be receiving my shoes in August of this year.

Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?

None at the moment 🙂

Q5: How did you first get involved in ballet?

I used to be (still am a bit) super clumsy! This helped with balance and I fell in love with it.

Definitely La Fille Mal Gardée or Act 1 Kitri

New York City Ballet or San Francisco Ballet Theatre

Definitely Romantic Tutus

Q12: What do you like to do when you aren’t dancing (your free time)?

I am either playing video games, crafting, or watching Netflix as well as doing exercises
