What makes you want to dance so much?  

It’s an outlet and it’s something fun for me to do. It makes other people happy and I like to make others happy and feel good about themselves.


How do you stay so positive?

I see the world as what it is and disregard the negative. I keep an outlook that today’s important. I don’t want to see anyone looking down on themselves so I try and help people see the lighter side of things. I try and bring positivity into everything, any little bit I do. If I see someone who’s upset I try and make them happy or dance to make them smile. I like to live by the motto “more love, less hate”.

In what ways does dancing help you?

It distresses me and also is a good workout.


How did you first get involved in dancing?

I started dancing when I was younger. I used to watch a lot of dance movies and I wanted to do stuff like that so I copied them. I made them my own and started making up stuff and got pretty good. People liked it so I went from what they liked.


What is the funniest thing that you've done while walking and dancing?

 During beach volleyball that first week we were here, I was saying the lyrics to “This Is What You Came For” walking around pointing at people.
