She also discusses if and when she will return to Broadway and of her other dreams. She also gives some hints on the Troupe dances for Motown Week. Here are a few excerpts. You can read more at the link. Special thanks to Carlos for the heads up on this interview. Picture above courtesy of Dancing With The Stars Make-up. Beautiful and such a passionate dancer! She’s future pro material in my opinion!
When did you decide you wanted to become a dancer?
I started dancing at 6 but I think it wasn’t until I was 17 that I knew that this was it for me, nothing else mattered. Dancing was no longer just something I did, it was who I am. As a younger teenager it was very much my parents pushing me, I just went where I was told because that’s the way it always was, but somewhere along the line it became my choice, my passion, MY dream. So I moved to London at 18 on my own to dedicate everything I had to my career. Best move I ever made!
How many hours a day do you practice each dance?
It changes depending on the difficulty of the number. Generally we do 3 days of between 6-8 hrs a day. Then camera blocking and band rehearsal and the rest. A lot of work goes into it.
Will they have another Broadway style dance off?
I am not sure but I hope so. I love that they bring in other styles. This coming week is Motown and we are bringing back some really classic steps… think Watusi, the jerk, the potato and a few more.
