Q: HOW DID YOU BECOME A DANCER? AND WHEN DID YOU START DANCING?

A: I started when I was 8. I got offered a spot in an all boys class from an outreach program. I didn’t get serious with it until after my mother passed away and I ended up going to Harid Conservatory in Florida. That is where I really got my act together.

Q: what is something most people wouldn’t know about you?

A: I don’t care for the colors yellow or purple. I don’t trust cats. I’m polite to them, but I never trust them.
