  1. Welcome back to Body & Pole, what have you been up to?I was performing on a cruise ship for almost a year and a half.
  2. How does your performing inspire your teaching? I definitely prioritize safety. I want to make sure that everyone feels good, feels beautiful, and strong and safe.
  3. What are you most excited to teach your aerial students this year? I’m actually excited to be teaching some silks. I have not been teaching very much of it. I’m excited for the challenge of doing something a little bit unlike the other two.
  4. You’re really great in every apparatus but which one’s your favorite to play in? Here at the studio? Definitely the hoop.
