GET TO KNOW
When did you start dancing and why?
I started dancing when I was 6, because I was always at the ballet studio for my sister’s classes. I wanted to do ballet to help prepare for other sports but stuck with ballet.
What inspired you? What inspires you as a pro?
My first teacher, Carlos Agudelo, inspired me from a young age. Now as a professional I am constantly inspired by the dedication of my coworkers and all the friends I have in the ballet world.
Why did you choose BSA, and for some both BSA-SBSA?
BSA is a great place to work daily. The whole company works together like a team which keeps everyone striving to be their best. That type of environment is what draws me to BSA.
