  • Why did you become an It Takes Two! spotlight dancer?

    Cyndy Dunn & David came to my office and asked me. Cyndy always felt that I didn't have the full experience as when I first danced during Covid and it was all virtual

    How has it been working with your GroundWorks dance partner?

    Wonderful! He's the top guy, so why wouldn't it be a ball! I'm learning to count in sets of 8

    What has surprised you about the creative process?

    That I'm not creative!

    What about dance in general connects with you?

    Because I love music, the right beat makes me want to get on the floor and dance. I'm now in a line dance class for the next several weeks and can't wait to learn some new ones then go home and practice by finding the dance on YouTube.
