You’re about to make your choreographic debut with a ballet for this year's  Bodytorque season. What’s been the biggest thing you’ve learned in the leap from dancer to choreographer?
Well, I don’t think I am a choreographer yet by any means. But a lesson I have learnt working with the talented dancers in Enter Closer is that we all move in unique ways, and something that may fit on my body may not look the same on another.

What do you miss most about home when you’re on tour?
My gorgeous little cat Gabby and my friends in Melbourne.

If you could invite anyone to dinner, living or dead, who would it be?
I would have loved to sit at a dinner table with Robert Helpman - the ultimate entertainer.

What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you on stage?
Once during Swan Lake my stage son started to be very sick in the lake during the freeze in Act One. Probably not very funny at the time - especially for him - but looking back at it now I have a little chuckle.

What are the highest rotation tracks on your iPod?
At the moment music by MGMT, Goldfrapp and Electric Hippies.

Does your heart lie with classical or contemporary ballet?
Classical and contemporary both give me so much joy. I love classical for its technical and artistic demands, but love throwing myself around and exploring space and movement with contemporary ballet.
