What will you do with the R250 000 if you win?
Put ¼ of it into a dance company to support the arts. Take my family on holiday; I just don’t know how to repay them after all the sacrifices they made for me.
What will you bring to the competition that's different?
I think I have a weird and wonderful style that combines all forms of dance and cannot be defined as one thing!
What’s your message for your soon-to-be fans?
Be an individual, god has given us gifts, use them as a privilege, be passionate about what you do, love yourself and believe in yourself. If you believe, no proof is needed, if you don’t believe no proof is possible.
