What made you want to be a dancer?

I think it was a quite natural thing to happen. My father is a musician so music has always been a part of my life. There was always beautiful music playing at home; me and my sister were dancing all the time. That's how we had fun and feel free!

Describe your perfect Sunday morning...

Waking up to a sunny day and no alarm! Knowing I will do anything I want. Having my family visiting and enjoying breakfast together. Coffee must be Italian and some dulce de leche on the table.

What would be your luxury item on a desert island?

A new generation coffee (espresso) machine that can play any music you request.
