Q+A with Tyler
Tell me about your dance bag.
I love using my Herschel Backpack as a dance bag! This is my first backpack dance bag. I like that it stands upright, so it stays better organized and is easier to access. I secure my mesh pointe shoe bag to the leather strap on the outside. And a backpack style is great for crisscrossing the UNCSA campus.
What are the must haves for your dance bag?
A thera-band, extra pointe shoes, and a good snack.
What is your favorite studio snack?
Dark chocolate and cherries and almonds.
What is your favorite recovery food?
Which pointe shoe do you wear?
I wear Stellar Lights by Suffolk. I get the shanks nailed to give me a custom fit.
Do you remember your first recital?
Yeah - I was a "black cat"! My favorite part was getting to wear a tail on stage
Share one thing we may not know about you.
Aside from dancing, I love to bake. Oatmeal bars, smoothie bowls, and homemade granola are some of my favorite things to whip up.
