What is the most fulfilling part of your work?: "There are many fulfilling parts to working with Cincinnati Ballet on New works. First, the Cincinnati Ballet dancers are amazing to work with! The company is so diverse with their abilities. They are able to move with athleticism and grace and they are fearless. They approach the choreography with such positive attitudes and are willing to push to try new things. For a choreographer, that is truly a gift. It is so rewarding to see the final piece of choreography after everyone has worked so hard to make the piece a part of themselves. "
