Ela Loska: Greetings from Poland! What made you choose a ballet career? Why ballet over tap dancing?

@live4music35: Do you get nervous when you go to stage? If you do, what's your measure for that?

@chemilans: Which role are you most at ease with, and which one makes you sometimes feel awkward?

@akikotyo: What are your dressing room essentials?

@artsworth How does the London dance scene compare to that of Sydney, your home city?

@mpjdancer: Congrats on your new degree! What would you like to do with it..?

Alyssa: Is it easier to act in a ballet where a character is laid out (like Romeo) or in contemporary ballet (like McGregor)?

Jeanyne: I am from Alabama where NASCAR is popular. I read that you are interested in motor racing. What kind do you watch?
