Episode 52 features the fascinating, the inspiring, the intelligent: Teresa Espinosa. The topics we cover are so varied that I am struggled to write this with eloquence, but I will do my best! When we speak about her contribution as a teacher, we dig through the debate of what it takes to be a teacher, as well as how Teresa has utilized her life experience to shape her classes.
As a dancer and choreographer, stories include auditions from the earlier years in Los Angeles, the manifestation of dancing for Britney Spears and experiences working with Miley Cyrus. Of course, I had to ask as many questions as possible on Magic Mike. All I'll say is Vegas + female perspective + the research that went into building the show + thoughts on tearaway pants.
Our conversation ultimately takes us is into the mind of Teresa, the writer, the reader, the thinker. It all ties back into knowing one's self worth and how it impacts the industry we are in.
This is one of those episodes that might blow your mind. It's vulnerable, honest, and packed with wisdom.
Episode 51 with G Madison IV (Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, JLO, Chaka Khan) captures what it is that makes it possible to have it ALL. G is someone whom I've being crossing paths with over the years and I have seen host red carpets, travel internationally (on a consistent basis), create workshops, teach at nearly every major studio in Los Angeles, dance for our favorite artists, choreograph for... Mariah 'freakin' Carey, and the list goes on!!! At last, I have the opportunity to sit down and ask him how he does it all. Not to mention, he always has a positive energy and really earns respect.
Topics we explore include (but are not limited to): What G was training in before dance, self-development to have 'it' all work, being married to one of the most incredible women in the world, story-time on working with Lady Gaga, recommendations on what to do with work slows down, the businesses that G runs and how, and way way more!
