Why I support Athletes and the Arts

Health is such an important part of being a dancer. Your body is your instrument, so if you don’t take care of it, you can’t perform at your best. I love inspiring dancers of all ages with my story. It is so important to me to not only be an example to them as a positive role model but to encourage them to follow their own dreams. I am living proof that you don’t have to be unhealthfully thin to be a successful dancer. Nothing is worth starving yourself over. That is why Athletes in the Arts is such a special organization. Keeping yourself healthy, no matter what your profession, will help you have a long and happy career.
