NORA: There were various questions about our theme this year, of beauty, light, and shadows. And so I think the one I got was, was the most beautiful thing or person in your life, or some variation on that. But I made a little dance phrase about my best friend and I did this sort of like little gesture she does when she's bored or she's thinking or spacing out or whatever and then, we kind of turned that into something a little bit flowier and dancier.

And then, she wears glasses and also a lot of eyeliner, so I did this sort of thing…we just like, made a ring around our eyes, traced a ring around our eyes with our fingers and then sort of made like a cat eyes movement and it extended it past our face. So yeah, there were a lot things like that from everyone, but those are just some examples.

I've done a lot of duets with Talia Mason. And those always turn out pretty well because I think we have good performance chemistry. And I did one last year with her. It had mixed meanings because it was kind of a…we both made little solos and combined them. And also generated movement together.
