On falling in love with dance as a kid:

“I think I was a little bit shy in real life, and maybe it was just a great outlet for me. But I just loved it, and once I started getting good at it, I felt really comfortable in my skin and it gave me that outlook to express different emotions. (Laughs) You know how everybody has a style when you do solos? I was always the girl who did angry, sad, melancholic solos. … That acting and getting to be someone else for 2½ minutes, I loved it.”
