“For me, dance isn’t about perfection.
It’s about expressing what I feel deep inside in such a way
that the audience can experience those feelings along with me.
What means the most to me is not when someone tells me my leaps or turns were amazing.
What means the most to me is when someone tells me that I made them feel something.
A great dancer might be able to amaze the audience with ten pirouettes or 64 fouettés,
but an extraordinary artist can make a person feel something with the simplest tendu.
That is what I strive to be…
Someone who will make you feel something… someone who can make you believe the story I am sharing…
someone who feels deep emotion and lives the story with every movement and moment myself.
I desire to be more than just a great dancer… I am an artist.”
