What made you start dancing?
I guess dancing inspired me as a way to tell my story and be myself. Dancing is a fun way to move around and do exercise and be myself.

What advice would you give to someone nervous about dancing?
There’s no need to be nervous! Be yourself and just have fun.I was nervous and scared, but just give it ago, be yourself and have fun. Don’t be worried, what does it matter what other people thing?

Who inspires you to dance?
The fact I can help other people inspires me. That I can make it better for them if I share my story. Also, Timomatic definitely inspires me to dance, and Franco and his story really inspires me.

Why would you recommend Every Chance to Dance?
It’s a way to have fun, be creative, do exercise and learn!

What made you start dancing?
When I was a child, my cousins and I would ALWAYS put on shows for our parents and from there I guess the rhythm just stuck. But being the shyest child of all my cousins, I didn’t pick it up again until my early twenties and I’ve now been dancing on and off for six years. Dance really helped me come out of my shell!

What advice would you give to someone nervous about dancing?
I would first ask them to describe me. Usually they answer, “confident, energetic and outgoing”. I would ask them if they would ever guess that I was once the shyest kids in the room?

What do you think of Every Chance to Dance?
I love it – it helps children become more creative, expressive and teaches them how to move from an early age. It also helps children really come out of their shell and gives them confidence within themselves when they learn the moves and can start doing them on their own without watching us!

What made you start dancing?
Watching Michael Jackson clips. I said to myself “wow, he is so cool! I want to move like that”.

What do you love about dancing?

It makes me feel good! I feel energized, free and it keeps me fit and healthy.

Why would you recommend Every Chance to Dance?
I think it’s an awesome resource for schools and really helps teachers deliver an effective arts curriculum in their schools. It’s designed for every primary school student and teacher in Australia. It literally gives them “Every Chance To Dance”.

What’s your favorite song to bust a move to?
Anything by Michael Jackson.

What made you start dancing?
Basically got home and mum said “you’re dancing”! But the thing I love about dancing is that you can walk into a class and have fun. You don’t get judged and you can be yourself.

What advice would you give to someone nervous about dancing?
You don’t have to be nervous, because at the end of the day everyone dances. It’s just a bit of fun really; it’s not serious so have fun with it.

What do you think of Every Chance to Dance?
I love it, I really do. I think it’s such a great program for these kids. I would have loved that in primary school, videos that you can download at your school … yeah I would have loved that.
