Tell us about your Dance Journey?

Well my dance journey haven’t been a smooth one because my mom wouldn’t hear of it, well not until I got a job as a dance instructor at true gold dance academy then she decided to give me a chance

My dance journey took shape when I joined my first dance crew back then in church in 2017, it was very demanding and at some point got exhausted but I found out I got better by each passing day,then I had this desire of having an all girls team which I actualized and got my official first team which I named Advanced Smilerz Squad(AVSS) we became very popular and attended many shows and all that, in 2018 the name changed to sisters with attitude, and from one story to another we all went to sch and that was itI continued dancing even in school, was appointed to Choreograph for a competition my school was going for and since then I’ve been a low key dancer
