A minute withLife & Style

A minute with Lucy Alhaya Dancer, dance teacher, choreographer


Where do you live?
Nicosia, alone for now as I am single 😊

What did you have for breakfast?
Usually, my breakfast does not contain carbohydrates, I try to avoid them. I eat 1-2 boiled eggs with cheese, turkey and cucumber or green pepper and you mean my coffee.

Describe your perfect day
A perfect day for me is when there is nice sunny weather to take a nice trip to the mountains in nature or to the sea with nice company. When the day might be rainy, I like to stay home and relax with a hot chocolate and watch movies.

Best book ever read?
My favourite book is The Secret. It helps in thinking positively.

Best childhood memory?
When the whole family would gather every Sunday and party from morning to night with souvla, music, and dancing. The institution of the family is a very important thing for me.

What is always in your fridge?
The essentials that every household needs and obviously at least something sweet, a chocolate.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
I listen to different kinds of music, I like almost all styles of music like Greek, Arabic, foreign, R&B, pop, country music, rock, blues, Latin, folk even the older songs.

What’s your spirit animal?
I would identify with the black panther for the dynamism it brings out by surviving on its own.

What are you most proud of?
I am proud of myself that I can implement my goals that I set in life and achieve them despite the difficulties that I may face like the rest of the world.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
Fast & Furious in the scene where they go to save Vin Diesel. In general I like speed and it gives a meaning that in friendship you would risk everything to save any of your friends.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
If one of them was famous, I would like to meet Angelina Jolie because she makes a lot of contributions and helps a lot of people. If I could meet a non-famous person, it would be my dad who is no longer alive. I would like to see him at least for a while! I wish I could go back in time and give him a hug. I miss him very much!

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
If I could travel back in time, I would like to go to the 50s – 60s when time was much more qualitative and also the fashion was more elegant. I’ve always been drawn to that good old Golden Era.

What is your greatest fear?
My biggest fear is loneliness, not having anyone by your side.

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
I would tell my 18-year-old self to live in the now and not think too much. To make more mature decisions in life. To love myself more and to give more importance to me. Because life is short and if we are not well we cannot help those around us.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
Someone’s sarcasm, to be toxic and nervous, show off.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
When the end of the world comes unfortunately there is nothing one can do! I’ll just say a big thank you to life and God for what was given to me and what I got from it. After all, we are immortal, we will just go to another world, at least our soul will.
