Why were you interested in starting?
I saw Missy at a competition and if already been doing ballet and modern. I thought it would be fun to try, so I did and I love it!
What is your favorite dance, and why?
Ohh, that’s hard! Blue Bonnets, I think. It’s really fun and the steps are nice. It’s more flowy.
What is your least favorite dance, and why?
The Barracks, because I don’t like the steps (lol)
What is your biggest goal you are working towards right now?
Taking my Associates in two years. I love dancing and sharing my passion for it with younger dancers and seeing their progress.
If you could give anyone looking to start highland dancing a piece of advice what would it be?
That you totally should and it’s super fun! Our dance school is like another family and everyone is great to be around.
What is your favorite memory so far in your highland career?
Dancing in Scotland. I loved travelling around the country and getting to stop and perform in all of these beautiful places. Travelling with the pipe band was really fun too!
Tell us a bit about what you do outside of highland:
I have four cats! I have been horseback riding for two years and do horse shows as well. I also do African School once a week through the school year where I learn parts of my African heritage like dance, music, games and stuff.
