San Pedro City Ballet: What is your favorite memory associated with SPCB?
Violeta Lemoh: My favorite memory from the San Pedro City Ballet was taking Misty Copeland’s master class.
SPCB: How does dance affect other aspects of your life?
VL: Dance helps me discipline myself in the real world, and it also helps me just detach myself from my worries and just live in the moment.
SPCB: Why do you like to dance?
VL: I love to dance because it is my passion and it keeps me excited throughout the day, and it will hopefully be my profession as I grow older.
SPCB: What is your favorite dance that you have been a part of?
VL: My favorite dance that I have been a part of is Patrick Bradley’s company piece from Dancing Through the Decades, which has let me put my emotions into the dance, which I personally feel will make me a stronger dancer.
SPCB: What do you like to do in your spare time?
VL: In the little spare time I have, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, playing the piano, drawing, watching movies, and exploring nature.
Congratulations, Violeta on being chosen as Student of the Month!
