But despite the members having different styles for rehearsing, Sienna Lalau praises their efforts to work together and give the best possible performances.

But everybody’s always on point. And even if something feels off in the dance or in the formation, they’re always like, ‘Make sure this happens and make sure that happens.’ I think they’re all very, very on it. But they all have very distinct personalities, for sure.
