What is your artistic background?
My artistic background is hip-hop based. Influenced by the hip hop street culture in NYC. Also influenced by musical theater along with life lesson.
What is your view on your profession today?
My view on my profession is that I can be bigger than I thought I originally could. I see myself reaching a level where I can be as big as a mega superstar like beyonce or micheal Jackson. Someone of that caliber with my dancing. I feel as though dance is underappreciated because we have to not only dance but sing and act. We are athletes as well. There is so much that goes into dance for it to be seen as a less than singing or acting. I also see my profession as something that I can use to create change. I see myself being a voice that speaks about the things that are going on in the world and waking people up. I see myself creating change. Also it making me have a platform to do so. Especially if my following is big.
How do you see yourself in 5 years? In 10 years?
In 5 years I see myself being a master at multiple styles. Winning world cup battles, physically being as peak physical condition. Absolute flexibility too. I see my style of dance being so personal and unique that it is one of a kind. I see myself traveling all over the world regularly with everything paid for by the people I am performing for. That I start a business and am able to manage myself. I see myself learning how to videography so I can create dance films. So I can speak through my art to people and create change. I see myself living and thriving off my dancing. In 10 years I see myself as a master of my dance style mastering 15 styles of dance by that point. Having a vast network and a big following. Having my company well put together and managing myself. I see myself traveling and performing all around the world for very important people. I see myself having a lot short films or being in a lot music videos and movies.
