What do you keep in your bag: well, I've been asked if I keep half my life in my bag...but the most important stuff (besides shoes, toe pads, leotards, etc.) would be stuff like hairspray, homework (for those long rehearsals), and granola bars.
Whats your favourite part of dance: I love almost every aspect of dance, the performing, class, but most of all, when we're all onstage rehearsing together in leotards, tights, sweatpants, etc.
Whats your worst part of dance: I hate it that there are all these cliques and stuff, you know? It really gets on my nerves. I mean, we're all in this thing together.
Whats the most difficult part of dance: The end of the performance. Most people are so happy when it's over, but it makes me sad.
Whats the most ugliest costume you've worn: The scarecrow coatume for our tap piece the last year at Huntington Dance Theater. Ugh!
Whats the lovliest costume you've worn: Probably my second CB recital costume. It was a long plum tutu with ivory trim.
