"I feel challenged and exhilarated in equal measures and consider myself extremely fortunate to work with a choreographer who champions longevity in her dancers. When you work with someone for a long time it is important to continue to develop as an artist so that you can still be inspiring and creative in the studio. The work with Liv has been very diverse over the years but luckily I work with wonderful dancers in the company who have helped me over the years as we have taken on ballroom dancing, roller skating, contact juggling, turntables, bull whips, aerial work and being a sheep. Life is never dull!"
