Welcome to DanceSpeak episode 78 with Mykell Wilson (Justin Bieber, Prince, Gnarles Barkley). I feel that this episode can really serve as motivation to a person in any given field, and feel so lucky that the dance world has so much of him.
As a dancer, choreographer, public speaker, singer, teacher and author, Mykell's talent, tenacity, and grit, shows what an epic work ethic looks like and what it can do.
Some of the topics we explore include: what lead Mykell into teaching, how Mykell transitioned into dance and experienced success in a relatively short period of time (note: pay attention to how Mykell approached his career change), owning your purpose and how hard to push, starting a professional dance career at age 23.5, what Mykell has observed about some of his awesome and successful peers, how Mykell's book came to be, and more.
Thanks for listening!
