Whether I was creating routines, practicing or teaching them, I felt the happiest. I’m not a professional dancer anymore, but I definitely still practice when I can. It’s a hobby that I never let go of. I think it’s important to always do a little of what you love every day and it’s the only way I can exercise.
5. Always be prepared.
