Mercedes. I loved performing this role because Mercedes is such a strong and powerful character, and I love being able to immerse myself in a role.

Carmen would be such an amazing role to dance. Her fiery and passionate character would be so much fun to delve into.

I think my biggest inspiration as a dancer is all of the great dancers I am constantly surrounded by. I am always trying to emulate them, whether it be the technique of a specific step or their portrayal of a role, watching an incredible dancer never fails to inspire me to push myself further.
