Welcome to Episode 146 of the DanceSpeak podcast with Kim Gingras (Madonna, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Justin Timberlake... the list goes OOOON). I think it's impossible not to love Kim. She came from Montreal to Los Angeles with a dream and unstoppable work ethic, which paid off FOR SURE. On top of this, Kim emanates humility and kindness, with a clear passion for sharing as much as she can to contribute to others' journeys.
In this episode Kim speaks about her choice to move countries for career and how the parameters of being on work visa actually helped her in the long run. It becomes clear quite quickly that Kim is balancing wearing different hats and she shares how she makes it all work (there is actually a clear approach that is GOLDEN).
We talk about how to find your mentors at any stage of life, which celebrity she has worked with that has the most surprising (and fun) difference in personality on and offstage, and I somehow manage to elicit excellent dating advice (wooohooo!).

Podcast 145 - Violeta Galargaza. Spanish Harlem teen motherhood to dancing in 'In The Heights' (the film).
Welcome to episode 145 of the DanceSpeak podcast with Violeta Galagarza (In The Heights, Grand Theft Auto, the Latin Grammys). Violet is a forever dancer, choreographer, and founder of a non-profit dance company, KR3Ts, which plays a major role in the bridge between underground and industry dancers in New York City.
Violet and KR3Ts have come up in loads of episodes here (if you re-listen or go back into the library, you'll NOTICE), and it is long overdue to have the woman herself come on and tell it like it is. Get ready for a story that exceeds what fiction can ever do. Violet lives hip hop; she lives the melting pot that NYC is; she lives what it is to be a strong Latina woman... we laugh, we reminisce, and I get REEALLL INSPIRED. I can't wait for you to hear the full story for yourself!
