I have only seen her in Welch's Swan Lake, and am looking forward to her in the Gala coming up.

Anderson is the only one of Houston Ballet's 54 dancers who is applauded before dancing, as soon as she steps onto the stage.
Good for Anderson. Good for Houston.
"It's been the coolest thing in the world to have a whole city behind me," Anderson said.
She's been special partly because she's a home-grown talent, a native Houstonian who entered Houston Ballet's Ben Stevenson Academy at 7.
Her skin color, she said, was less of an obstacle than her muscular build.
