Tell us about your pointe shoes?

Gaynor Hard Box 4


Did you ever consider a completely different career?

I have always been interested in writing, but that doesnt seem something I would want to do exclusively. If I were to study a different career right now, it would be Translation.


What are your favourite your pre/post show foods?

Pre: salads and chocolate.

Post: I love a good treat, creamy pasta or pizza delivery!


Who really inspired you? (Family, teacher, celebrity ect)

My teacher Roser Muñoz is always at the back of my head, and definitely Marianela Nuñez.


What was the best advice you ever received?

Don’t find excuses when you are lazy and get your butt to work.


Best day of your dancing career?

My debut as Juliet.

What's your favourite piece of non-ballet clothing?

Summer dresses. It's comfortable to not have to think of matching, you grab the one that calls you the most and you are out the door.


Whats your coffee order?

White mocha from Starbucks


If you could sit down to drinks/dinner with one person living or dead, who would it be?

Walter Disney. He understood happiness in a very special way and I'd love to learn where that came from.


Do you have any skills or surprising talents?

I have a little business making ballet tiaras, and I am focusing on a writing project, it's a "talent" I am exploring at the moment.

Best meal you've ever had?

I have plenty of ideas for best meals, first idea that came to my head was a small local running sushi bar in Osaka where I ate every single day during a tour there.


Last thing you read?

Love virtually, for the 3rd time.


Last series you binged?

Friends.


Last time you were totally starstruck?

Show dancer Yulia Zagoruychenko.
