What’s your favourite meal of the day?
Breakfast. I can have breakfast at any time of the day. Some of my favourites: poached eggs on sourdough, french toast, porridge and pancakes.
Top five things that would make you really happy right now?
I'm pretty happy at this point in my life. I don't feel like I really need anything. There is one thing that comes to mind, though… seeing my family! It seems to become harder the older I get to have them halfway across the world. I miss them terribly!
Do you have any morning rituals to gear you up for a day of dance?
Mornings usually start with a good breakfast and a strong coffee, followed by a pilates session where I warm up and work on strengthening the muscles I need to make me a better dancer.
Which role do you dream of performing, and why?
I would love to do any of the big classical ballets. They are all challenging technically, as well as artistically. It would be such a great accomplishment to carry a ballet. I would also love to do more contemporary works and challenge my body to its limit.
What has been your favourite costume to wear on stage so far, and why?
There has been many, but if I had to choose one it would be the white tutu I wore in Suite en blanc during my first year in the company. Never have I felt more like a ballerina!
How do you like to enjoy a cold winter’s evening?
Good company, good food and a warm, cosy environment!
