First teacher & current teacher?
My first and only teachers have been Keltie Stowkowy and Pierie and Gail Danysk
Winning my first Provincial Championship when I was 9 and receiving a gold medal in my sword dance on the qualifying day of Worlds.
The Worlds forsure! I also enjoyed the Millennium Championship in 2000 in Scotland.
Why is this your favourtie?
The Worlds is amazing, I never thought I could get that nervous and the adrenaine rush of dancing with the most talented dancers in the world is so overwhelming.(And the Scottish candy is good too.)
There are so many! Definitely all the amazing friends I have made and the interesting places I have traveled to with dancing, I will always be extremely grateful for that.
Favourite dance & reason?
I love the Reel because it is the only dance you do with a group of people and propelled-pivot turns can be a lot of fun.
Funniest dancing memory?
I was very young and it was one of the first times I ever competed the Sword Dance. The piper stopped in the middle of the last step and the other girls dancing with me got confused and stopped. I knew I wasn't finished the last step so I kept dancing but I got a bit carried away and forgot when to end, so I kept going around my sword until I got flustered and started crying.
