How long have you been dancing?

Since I was 12. Breaking since I was 2.

How did you get into breaking?

Love hip hop music and was inspired my MC Lyte’s dancers Leg 1 and Leg 2 when I was 13. Found the bboy scene in Columbus, OH while in Grad School.

What is one thing YOU can’t dance without?

My female supporters in the scene, and support from my crew Get Down Gang.

What has been your most memorable experience from/while breaking?

Battling other amazing dancers around the world and meeting my husband.

Do you have any female role models that you look up to in, or out of, the breaking/hip hop industry/scene?

Rokafella…a legendary bgirl from NYC. My all female crew Venus Fly Trap. All my hustlin ladies in the Pgh scene (you know who you are).

What is one piece of advice that you would give to females interested in breaking or b-girling?

Don’t let anyone tell you how to dance. Express your soul the way you want to.


First thing you do when you wake up?

Feel how sore I am from the night before…I mean from dancing. Haha!

What’s on your feet?

Sneaks of course. Adidas or pro-keds.

What’s on your face?

lil’ bit a make up. not too much to sweat off. Enough to make me not look like a ghost. haha

What is your favorite accessory?

Earrings. The bigger the better.

What are you listening to right now?

DeRobert and the Half-Truths “Just Don’t Care”…..ridiculously soulful!

What won’t you leave the house without?

My iphone and lipstick (caffeine for the face).

Where might we find you?

Shadow Lounge and AVA gettin down.

Last thing you do before bed?

Ummmm that’s private wink wink…

List one question you wish we would have asked, then answer it : )

Where do I see myself when I’m 60?

Still breaking and gettin down in the cypher. I’ll never stop! If I end up in a wheelchair…I’ll just get really good at popping.

One thing you think is “crazy good”:

My lifestyle, passion, and drive…this blog, all the amazing females in my life.
