A Defining Moment

It would have to be my Debut as Prince in The Sleeping Beauty.  It challenged my artistic maturity and it was physically demanding. The most defining moment of it all was the process into making it all believable on stage with choreography matching the emotional state of the character then the musicality.  It required a lot of deep understanding about the role you’re playing while putting a little bit of yourself in it.  It was the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced throughout my whole career.
