Years dancing: 10
Style of dance: Contemporary
Favorite ballet: Alvin Ailey’s “Revelations”

“Dance is very empowering. I get to show who I am, and that I’m phenomenal and beautiful and truly me. I don’t have to say a single thing and yet somebody—no matter what age, race, walk of life—would understand my story and could relate to that.”


Years dancing: 16
Style of dance: Contemporary and Modern
Favorite ballet: Anything by William Forsythe

“Dancing is part of me. With so many things going on in the world and happening in my personal life, dance is something I can escape to and be my own self.”


Years dancing: “Since I could walk.”
Style of dance: Ballet
Favorite ballet: Jerome Robbins’ “Glass Pieces”

“Movement is finding the ultimate connection between my thoughts, body and mind. When I start moving, it’s a way I can express things that I can’t with my words.”
