Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?

Q5: How did you first get involved in ballet?

I first got involved in ballet after watching Barbie ballet movies for so long that I wanted to begin dancing myself!

In my free time, I love to bake, relax, spend time with friends outside of the studio, and watch Netflix!
