Personal Quote:

When dancing Buddy and I were alter egos, you might say. We danced with that same wonderful relationship we shared as brother and sister I wouldn't say we were such great dancers. The vital thing that we gave out was a relationship. When we danced, we were grateful to the audience and we wanted to do it for them. See more »
