This year I was fortunate enough to debuted her role as the Sugar Plum Fairy with the Phoenix Ballet! I decided to document my experience through photos and share them with DDS and all my fans! Here’s a look at my 2015 Nutcracker experience – enjoy!


Pre­ show at my makeup station. It’s a bit messy but there’s no time to organize now because I have to be on stage soon!


Before the curtain opens I’m stretching on stage, surrounded by angels.

Sugar Plum is one of my favorite Pas de deuxs to dance. I’m dancing in this performance with my wonderful partner Slawomir Wozniak Jr.

Catching my breath and taking a final bow. 


With my sister, Keely. I love when my family visits!
