"There are countless aspects that inspire me to dance. Although, there is one cause of inspiration in particular that makes me feel something ultimately special, and that is the music. When I hear a beautiful piece of music, it has the ability to affect me in a way where I feel a complete sense of elation. It's like the music hits a trigger inside me, which transports me to another place where I'm able to express anything it may compel me to feel. Then, when the music is bound with movement, it is just heavenly. That, to me, is a constant source of inspiration."
