New York City Ballet has provided me with an opportunity to dance an incredible amount of diverse work which continues to challenge and inspire me, even after almost nine years with the Company. As is the case with many dancers, I’ve struggled with many injuries, so fitness has played a huge role in helping me either get back to work or to maintain my health. After an ankle surgery, I trained at the Refine Method which helped me get back to work in record time.
