What music do you listen to? 

Right now — Macklemore, Radiohead, Fiona Apple, Souljazz Orchestra

What profession, other than dance artist, would you like to attempt?

I did attempt a career in music. But lately I’ve thought translating poetry would be really interesting and probably the most like choreographing and dancing.

What is your guilty pleasure television show? Project Runway

What style/technique was your first dance lesson?  Ballet

What is your favourite charity?

World Wildlife Federation — since I was a little kid. (But of course Myeloma Canada too — close to my heart and with a benefit performance on March 23rd as part of this production!)

What is your piece about in five words or less?

My portion of the program (Half-life): Carbon, nitrogen, helium, hydrogen, oxygen.
