Still dancing, still spinning on my head, and still be a student. I feel in dance there’s never a time to stop Learning. So I would like to remain a student. I want to learn and discover all styles and genres of dance. And of course settled down with my money working for me instead of myself working for my money!
12. What has been your most memorable dance experience?
November of 2005. Orlando, Florida. A competition called “Evolution 2”. I entered a b-boy competition with my Crew “Flexible Flave”. We’ve worked for years to be ranked in the top of our nation and winning this comp. would set us there. And after the Final battle they announced the winners: “Flexible Flave”. To work with my crew members day after day for years…with all of us having the same goals and dreams in life, we finally did it together. That competition not only set our crew on one of the top crews in the nation/world; however, I feel it brought our relationships closer as individuals…so in the end we got 2 for the price of 1!
