Girls love guys who dance, and I’m definitely going to be the first one on the dance floor. Usually, you just see guys sitting around, but I definitely don’t hold back when it comes to dancing.
Growing up as a dancer, the stage is really where I love to be performance wise.
I grew up dancing my whole life, and I always kind of perceived that’s what I would do professionally. But when I caught the acting bug, I knew I needed to go with no turning back.
I knew if I had gone to school – if I had gone to Juilliard and danced for four years – I would have spent every day wondering what would have happened if I had gone to Los Angeles instead.
I know, for me, ‘Grease’ was one of the first musicals that I can really remember watching as a kid, and I kind of fell in love that that genre.
I love Frank Ocean. I think he’s so talented and his music is so great. So, I would love to do one of his songs like ‘Bad Religion’ or ‘Pink Matter.’
I started dancing when I was five, and I trained intensively as a competitive dancer up until the end of high school. I did all genres, and later on a did a lot of extra ballet on top of that. I actually got accepted to Julliard for dance during my senior year, but I ultimately turned it down to come to L.A. to act.
I was always singing to myself, but I never ever performed, and I never told anyone I liked to sing. So it was a definitely a new adventure going in to audition for ‘Glee.’
When I was a senior, I got accepted into the Julliard School for Dance, but ultimately decided to move to L.A. to act, so that was a fun conversation with the parents. I truly have some of the greatest parents ever.
You know what, I am not gonna lie, that Taylor Swift ‘Trouble’ song? I can’t resist that song. Her melodies are very catchy.
