Interview Highlights
Q: What inspires you and drives you forward as an artist?
My daily life inspires me, as do my colleagues. Growing as a human makes me grow in dance and that is something I have learned while being with Lines Ballet. It is all one, there is not a separate thing you bring to your art. There is no separation from me as a person and an artist and that is what makes the art so rich and full.
