This week on The Ensemblist, we celebrate the 2018 Chita Rivera Award nominees. Today, we hear from Skye Mattox, nominated for Outstanding Female Dancer in a Broadway Show for her role in Carousel.
There are so many emotions swirling around inside me the past twenty four hours. This nomination truly has meant the world, and I couldn’t be more grateful (or excited) about it.
No matter what your role is like in a show, doing it eight times a week is extremely difficult. But I do my absolute best to give the same amount of energy onstage with every show. So this has been a huge affirmation for me that it is not a wasted effort.
I cannot say enough about my cast. I’m lucky enough to get to dance alongside some of the most brilliant dancers in New York City, and I absolutely mean that. To have so many people from our cast nominated singularly, and as an ensemble is just thrilling. I’m so proud to be part of such a beautiful, hard working crew.
