How old were you when you started dancing?

I was grown and on my own when I started dancing.

What is the biggest lesson you learned as a dancer?

What you do doesn’t have to be who you are.

Did you have a plan in mind for when you wanted to stop?

I had a plan in mind but life had another plan in mind. So, now I am just going with the flow, living life one day at a time while simultaneously preparing for anything life throws my way.

What’s been your worst experience?

Dealing with everyone on the outside looking in with their assumptions, judging, and intolerance while simultaneously telling you to be you and live your life.

What’s the difference being a dancer in Atlanta vs other cities?

In my opinion, there is only a difference between being a dancer in the south and a dancer in the north, not Atlanta vs other cities.

What can you teach others beyond the pole?

I can teach people a lot if they are willing to learn. A more accurate question would be, what do others want to learn from me beyond the pole?

How has filming Beyond the Pole changed your perspective?

It hasn’t changed mine at all. I have always seen beyond the pole.
