I am 21 years old. I am majoring in exercise and wellness and minoring in dance. I recently got married about three months ago to Daniel (DJ) Doman. I have been dancing since I was three and haven’t stopped since. This is my first year on CDT and am enjoying the great experiences we have had.
个人简介：我今年21岁。在杨百翰大学主修运动和健康专业，副修舞蹈。大约三个月前，我和丹尼尔（ DJ ）·杜曼结婚了。我从三岁起开始跳舞，从来就没有停止过。这是我加入当代舞蹈剧场舞团（CDT）的第一年，我很享受我所拥有的这一次伟大的经历。
Reflections on Visiting China
One thing I really enjoyed was working with the BDA dancers. They are very talented dancers and hard workers. Whenever we were in rehearsal with them, I always wanted to work harder because they were always giving it their all. We worked with them for three days and got a lot accomplished. They are also the sweetest people! The dancers would often get food for us when we were hungry at the theatre and left us with presents. They were always so kind especially if we were struggling with something.
One thing that amazed me was communication with the BDA dancers. They knew some English, but it was hard to fully communicate. When we were dancing and looked into their eyes, we all communicated through dance. Each move was done differently by each dancer, but as a unit we danced as one.
One thing I learned is that I am very grateful to live in America with all the commodities we have. I have bathroom phobias, so bathrooms in China were scary for me. I also am a pretty picky eater. I did eat duck though!
