1. What is your history with dance in SL?
I started as a hostess with a male dance revue, then Spirit Light Dance Company, I’m a graduate of the Journey Dance Academy. I started taking classes at the academy just for informational purposes, and I was hooked. Since then, I’ve dance with the Virtuoso and Harlequin groups, at Elysium Cabaret as a choreographer. I’ve also done guest performances at Phoenix, GB, SL birthdays, and assorted other venues either as a solo artist or as part of one of the groups.

2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?
Pushing the envelope of what can and can’t be done… Pushing myself to learn new things constantly… The applause is nice too. That moment when it all comes together as you visualized it.

3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?
Building sets… That moment when it doesn’t come together… When you link things together and the prim count exponentially explodes. Also it’s a really expensive hobby.

4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?
Do I have to pick just one? For the most part I have enjoyed every minute of it. Even when I’m frustrated and swearing at a set. I love the people and the creative outlet dance provides.

5. Out of all the dances you have done or participated in, which is your fave?
Probably Just like Fire by P!nk last year. I really pushed myself both with the set build and the movers. I was really proud of that when it was all said and done.

6. What message would you like to leave for your fans or the dance community?
Don’t be delicate, be vast and brilliant…
