FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU SAY “CAPEZIO”
Shoes and dancewear. Capezio was the first brand I wore starting out as a dancer!

BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR OTHER DANCERS
My biggest piece of advice would be to never stop growing as a dancer. Remember that you are also an artist and not just an athlete and I always feel that there is room to grow or something to learn regardless of what age or where you are in your career. I am always open and respectful to different works and choreographers. I also love being challenged. Always keep an open mind, work really, really hard, stay humble, and to top it all off, remain true to yourself as a dancer and a person.
UNUSUAL FACT/LOVE/HABIT/GOAL/ABILITY THAT PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW
I like to work out, swim and practice yoga in my free time and in the future I would love to get more into acting and maybe even open up my own dance school. I also like to sing!
