Why do you share dance?
Dance is my life. I found myself dancing without thinking about it . I would dance all over the place as a child, so much so that people in my hometown in VA recognized my talent. By age 15, I was asked to perform with a celebrated hiphop artist.
What choreographers influence your teaching the most?
Alvin Ailey, Michael Thomas, Ronald K. Brown, and Les Twins really inspire and influence me but this list goes on and on.
