Episode 56 with Soraya Lundy (Missy Elliott, Drake, Alicia Keys and more...) represents my original vision of DanceSpeak: It is a full no-holds-barred conversation on life and dance, where we forget that there is a device to record our shenanigans and go IN. Soraya, as a dancer/choreographer/teacher who has done very well in the dance industry, has a clarity on her purpose as a mover, and a non-conformist approach, which truly inspires. Between reminiscing about what we were like as teens in NYC, we discuss differences between coasts, what professionalism looks like in the dance world, staying true to one's artistry, and way way more. Tune in and enjoy what 14 years of friendship sounds like in this week's episode.
Episode 55 brings you the inner workings, thoughts, and journey of the renowned Teacher/Choreographer/Dancer: Lee Daniel. Our interview moves across topics including preparation vs. luck, having a life outside of dance, and a breakthrough way of looking at time as something we construct rather than rush against. Lee allows us in on his earlier years in Los Angeles, as he 'figured out' how to create a foundation in a constantly changing environment. He also shares on his choice of pursuing a career in dance while in school, and so much more. This episode will speak to the benefits of hard work, patience, and getting rooting in what you love!
