  • My daughter and I attended your performance last night, a first for us both, and we were completely blown away by your performance, and April's as well. The power and the passion with which you dance is amazing. My daughter has danced for 6 years is just beginning her pointe training. To see your performance really gave her a renewed sense of purpose and ignited that fire in her to really pursue what she loves.

  • In reply to Karit222:

    Thank you so much. I am glad that it makes her want to pursue dancing and to push for more. It is important for me to touch my audience with my performance. As a dancer, I try to stay true to the role by giving the part all that I have. The audience is coming to see Othello, not Fabrice pretending to be a moor. This why I involve myself into the character as much as possible to be able to deliver....

    So thank you for this nice note, it really means a lot to me and my dedication to do what I do.
