Valentine


Former dancer with the Grands Ballets

Quick Chat

I was four and a half, and I loved music. I would dance and jump. I would spin around so much that the floor boards would spread apart. Of course my father was unhappy about that, but it gave my parents a good idea for a Christmas gift: my first classical dance class. All it took was one trial class and I was hooked! What I love about dance is the sense of discovery and exploring aspects of myself that I’m still not familiar with, and the moment on the stage when you put everything out there—the fact that there are no limits, which surprises me every time and is there waiting for me.
