Podcast 37 - Kachi Alcazar & Gordon Watkins - Hanging With The New Generation, A Snapshot Of What It's Like To Be 22 In The Dance Industry
Episode 37 gives you a refreshing shift in viewpoint as I sit down with Gordon & Kachi, a couple of very talented professional dancers... whom are a couple... and are appropriately 22 years old. In many of the previous episodes, the topic of this 'upcoming generation' is brought up, as they have the strongest social media presence and also are met with criticism. This episode, 'goes there.' We speak about what it's like to be on the receiving end of critiques and how they want to support all the generations of dancers.
For those whom might what to know how to connect with this generation of dancers, this episode will be very informative. Topics that we explore include (but are not limited to) how Gordon and Kachi each got their foot in the door, challenges that might arise with success, the cathartic quality of dance, being a dance couple, and a heated debate on Hip-Hop! Open up your minds and ears, this episode delivers on unabashed REAL TALK.
