RTM: I had the opportunity to watch you in a tap class, where do you get your elegance and grace; you seem to effortlessly float across the floor.

VW: I'm flattered, thank you. I've always carried myself with elegance and grace, but dance seemed to bring it out even more. I take after my eccentric English grandma who had wonderful grace and etiquette. She always told me "act as though your being watched at all times" "And when in public only order earl grey tea as it's the most sophisticated tea to drink!"

RTM: You dance 6 hours a day 5 days a week. How do you do it?

VW: Epsom salt baths! I literally go through 20lbs a week. I live a very disciplined life, eat healthy and I'm in bed by 9pm every night.

RTM: You have a perfect look for golden era musical theatre. Has this always been your style?

VW: Yes, I had a bouffant hairdo as a teenager and have always been sort of an old sole. I see myself living in the 1960's more than I do now.

RTM: Favorite classic movie?

VW: Hitchcock! Rear window

RTM: What actors have influenced you?

VW: Vivian Leigh, Barbara Stanwyck, Fred Astaire , Gretta Garbo, Tippi Hedren.

RTM: What do you do on your days off?

VW: I love to cook! Lately, I've been on a cheesecake kick but make everything from bread to amazing spaghetti sauce. I originally wanted to become a pastry chef, who knows maybe I'll do that after my theatre career!

RTM: What is your go to audition song?

VW: It's Delovely from Anything Goes.

RTM: What is your favorite thing about living in New York?

VW: Central Park! It's unlike anything in the world.

RTM: What's next for you?

VW: I'm going to London to dance at pineapple dance studios and do some auditioning in the west end. I feel it's important to keep learning and challenging myself not only as an artist but an individual.
