    When I was a freshman in High School, I fell during a performance at a rally. I was embarrassed because it was the easiest part of the routine. I was just walking to a new position when I tripped and tumbled.

    A few of my favorite choreographers are Martha Graham, Kurt Joss, Anna Halprin, William Forsythe, Twyla Tharp, and Mary Wigman mostly because of their courage to do something completely different then what society was used to seeing.

    What is the key to staying in dancing shape?
    I dance all the time! I vary my dance training from jazz, ballet, modern and contemporary. In my spare time, I also like to jog and do Pilates. I try to make healthy decisions for my meals and provide my body with efficient fuel.
