“I miss you when I can’t sleep.” #HappyFathersDay to my WONDERFUL father . I am posting this dance video because without my Dad I would have NEVER been able to move my body or create the way I do . He gave me this gift of Dance . My father has molded my craft / profession into what it is today . He has given me the opportunity to fight for my dreams , be a starving artist , & still be proud of every moment I dance . We all know the Dance Industry is not a glamorous one .. you don’t get paid as much as people who have been through college and get given jobs . It’s hard . & When I question myself , my Dad will always be there as a reminder of why I dance & why I have what I have . He drove me 10 hours to Tennessee from Chicago just to audition for So You Think You Can Dance my VERY first time at the ripe age of 18 . I missed tons of company rehearsals & even gave up being in some dances to pursue this . I felt guilty but my Dad pushed my to FIGHT for MY DREAMS & no one else’s . Thank you Dad , for fully supporting me in my life and my passion . Without you , these feet wouldn’t be twirling the way they do now . I remember all your sacrifices Father . Thank you !
