Personal Quote:

When I look back on my career, I realize I had a lot of nerve. I had stride. I had guts. If you really want to be a choreographer, get down to business. Give it all you've got. You've got to prove yourself honey; and if you do it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman.


Took dance lessons at the age of 12 and later studied in San Francisco. See more »
