1. What is your history with dance in SL?
It’s all Tray Porthos’ fault. He introduced me to dance in SL and gave me the bug. I cut my teeth learning how to choreograph while producing several acts for a dance show at the SL Science Fiction Convention in 2014, and from there, joined Guerilla Burlesque and debuted as a choreographer in December of 2014. I was a choreographer in Idle Rogue’s Le Cirque de Nuit in the spring of 2015. In May, I took a leave of absence, and am just now returning to the SL stage. I’m really looking forward to dancing with Elysium!

2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?
It allows me to really channel my passion and creativity into a visible work of living art. I love to tell stories with my acts – even if the story isn’t apparent to the audience, I still have a detailed story in my head when I’m creating it. It melds my love of storytelling, dance, music, and art into one amazing medium.

3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?
I’m not sure that there’s anything I dislike about SL dance, with the possible exception of when drama erupts… and let’s face it, we’re a very passionate group of people, so drama does sometimes happen.

4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?
I’m not sure I can narrow it down to just one experience, there have been so many. I love the dedication of choreographers and dancers and the very real sense of community and support that’s so prevalent throughout SL dance. Every time I go to a show or step on stage, no matter what, I’m reminded of why I love doing this and why I love working with the people in the dance community.

5. Out of all the dances you have done, which is your fave?
I’d have to say the act I did for my GB debut, Fire & Ice, is probably my favorite. It took me two months and a lot of uttered bad words to put it all together, but the end product was something I’m extremely satisfied with and proud of.

6. What message would you like to leave for your fans?
You guys make all of the time, energy, effort and creativity that get put into these acts so very worth it. Without all of you, our fans, cheering us on, enjoying our art, watching our stories, all of this wouldn’t be nearly as meaningful. Your support and love mean the world to me, and you give me inspiration to keep doing this. You all make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, like I swallowed a puppy. ❤

7. Anything else you’d like to share?
I would like to be a dinosaur when I grow up.
