What are you most looking forward to about the Appalachian Spring Project?
I am looking forward to rehearsing and performing with live music. This is unlike anything I’ve done before and I can't wait to embracing this amazing opportunity!
What do you hope to get out of taking part in this performance project?
I'm hoping I learn how to work in a different environment with other dancers and musicians. I hope to use this experience to work on developing my artistry.
How do you see that it will improve your dance?
I hope this experience will improve my musicality, and want to develop my connection between music and my dance expression. It is also a great opportunity to dance to a creative re-imagining of Copland's beautiful Appalachian Spring ballet music.
How valuable is this experience for you as a young artist?
I think any performance opportunity is a valuable experience. This is particularly exciting as it is providing a different atmosphere and environment than any other opportunity I've had in the past!
