How did your dance journey begin?

I have been dancing with Boston Ballet for almost two decades now. Through the many years and seasons, I’ve grown as an artist and as a person. I absolutely love all the ballets I get to dance and the diverse rep I have the honor of learning. I am really excited about stepping into more choreography and I can’t wait to see where that part of my career goes!
