I have a very small dog called Guido.
“You can never be overdressed or
overeducated.” - Oscar Wilde
I’m more of a Vogue reader.
My girlfriend. :)
Unnecessarily shortened words lol.
Coconut oil. I eat sleep and breathe it.

If you weren’t a dancer, you would like
I have always had a huge interest in
costume and fashion design. I’m always
trying to find ways to incorporate my love
for this with my dancing.
What styles of dance are incorporated
in this performance?
We are a contemporary dance company,
so our forte will always be contemporary
dance. In saying that, we have been
playing with the idea of folk dancing for
Gideon’s new work L’Chaim!, which will
premiere as part of Interplay.
What kind of music will the
performance be set to?
The music for Rafael’s new work is
classical - a reimagining of Bach’s Violin
Partita No. 2 in D Minor, played live on
stage amongst the dancers. Jacopo’s
work has an experimental soundtrack by
Berlin-based 48nord, an experimental
electro duo. And Gideon’s work will have
new music by composer Stefan Gregory,
who is in the studio with us right now,
What is the best part about being a
The feeling that all of your hard work,
the blood, sweat and tears, has finally
paid off. It’s an incredible feeling of
achievement and success when you’re
out on stage performing in front of a sold-
What’s the scariest part?
Because I’m quite new to the professional
dance industry, I find there are constant
challenges. I have to remind myself to
keep confident and not be too worried.
I’m here for a reason, and nothing can
ever really go that badly!
How do you like to work out?
I dance from 9:30am to 6pm Monday to
Friday, so my job is already very physical.
I have a strict Pilates routine which I
aim to maintain every day. I also have
memberships with two gyms, which I try
to get to 3-4 times a week out of work
What is Interplay?
Interplay is a triple bill of three completely
different works choreographed by three
well-known choreographers - Sydney
Dance Company’s Artistic Director, Rafael
Bonachela, Australian choreographer,
Gideon Obarzanek, and Italian
choreographer, Jacopo Godani.
What do you miss about living in New
Family and friends go without saying.
But probably the relaxed energy New
Zealand has. It’s so calm and beautiful.
What do you love about living in
Firstly, it’s so nice to be living in a
city that’s so accepting of the LGBTI
community. Sydney is a city full of
opportunity. I find it hard not to love living
