    [Favorite city] "Paris is a dream."

    "I started working professionally when I was just sixteen. My first performance with New York City Ballet will always stand out [in my mind]. I was so excited but terrified. I'll never forget how exhilarating it was. I also loved performing overseas. The Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg is just magnificent and was such a powerful moment onstage."

    “I adore Tolstoy. War and Peace is a favorite along with the tragic Anna Karenina."

    “[On the wardrobe malfunction front], thankfully nothing too memorable! The worst thing is if a ribbon or elastic snaps on your shoes!”

    “[My training while at the New York City Ballet] was pretty grueling. As a professional ballerina you simply live and breath ballet—there is literally no time for anything else! My day would begin at about 9am in the theatre with stretching out and prepping shoes and wrap around 10 or 11pm after a performance with non stop dancing in between, from morning class to a day full of rehearsals and the show at night."

    "I love a Chanel Dragon [nail polish] or CINÉMA for the nails and a sheer pink like Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Évasion on the lips.”

    this gave me the idea to decorate pointe shoes with flowers for performance. that could be cute
