My goal with my art of dance has always been to watch and be inspired by others before me but to not copy and duplicate what they have done but rather create my own style and X factor that separates you from others. Having no fear and always being fully in control of your art in my case creating and mixing  the music I dance too so that the ideas and vision of routines are exactly what you want.
