"All of Desdemona's costumes in Lar Lubovitch's Othello are amazing. They're flowy and romantic. We use the same Othello costumes that have been worn by Julie Kent at American Ballet Theatre and Yuan Yuan Tan at San Francisco Ballet, and it's cool to step into something that has been worn by such beautiful dancers.

"Also, it's not just the most stunning costume in the world, but I love my costume for Jerome Robbins' In The Night. It's so elegant and formal. I remember when I first put it on -- I was like, 'Wow, I feel like a professional ballerina.'"
