How did you start dancing?

I started dancing when I was four years old. There was a dance studio across the street from my house and I would see girls leaving the studio so I wanted to do it too, and then I fell in love with it the first minute I did it. I was so happy, and this is what I have been doing ever since.

What is your favorite Ballet Beautiful workout move?

Swan arms! It is a really elegant and graceful ballet move and it is really hard. It tones and sculpts lean arms while building upper body strength and posture!

What is your best healthy living tip?

Good health isn’t just about healthy eating and exercise, it is also about mental heath and a healthy lifestyle.

Here are some tips from me:

– Drink plenty of water 8-10 glasses per day

– Get enough sleep

– Exercise every day, movement is life

– Eat more fruits, taking supplements is not the same as food direct from nature

– Love yourself and purge negativity

– Smile more ?

What is your favorite dance memory?

I have so many unforgettable dance memories! A more recent one is my participation with the American Ballet Theater in the Sleeping Beauty production as Ariana at the Metropolitan Opera House!

Favorite ballet?

I love Don Quixote. It is a really dynamic ballet. The colors and music are vivid and the dancing is very moving.

Favorite go-to healthy food?

Fage Greek yogurt with honey and almonds!

What is your favorite indulgence or treat?

Dark chocolate almonds!

How do you style your dance-wear from the studio to the streets?

I like to wear my ballet beautiful black mesh leotard with high-waisted shorts or skinny jeans when I leave the studio.

When you’re not dancing, we can find you… 

When I am not dancing I love to enjoy a day with friends, or a walk in Central Park!
