Where are you from?
I am Originally from Miami, Florida but I graduated from high school in Orlando.
How did you get started into dance?
I started as a kid in the 2nd grade. I looked up to Michael Jackson and like every kid in America I did my best to mimic his movement. So, my teacher entered me in a talent show and asked me to do all those same MJ moves I would do in class for the girls on that stage. I was scared and ready all at the same time. I absolutely loved it, and here we are today.
What celebrities have you danced with and how was the experience?
To date, I have danced with B2K, Kent Jones, and I've been on tour with MC Hammer.
What do you love about the art of dance?
This one of my favorite interview questions by far! The art of dance is all about expression. I can show what I'm feeling through movement. Dance allows me to release and forget about all the troubles in the world. Keeps me at peace. When did you decide to make dancing your professional career? That epic talent show did it for me. The reaction from the crowd was all I needed to know that this was meant for me.
What are 3 characteristics of a good dancer?
To be a GREAT dancer you must be coachable, train hard and never get complacent. Great dancer stays humble and stays hungry.
