1. What is your history with dance in SL?
Well I started here in the main stream dance community a little over a year ago. But I have been coming to shows since Prestor and I met and became a couple three years ago. He was going to shows and asked me to go. I was hooked. Then 2 and half years ago the RP sim I roleplay out of the women put together a show and asked me to be in it and I created my first dance act for it… I did it all on my own. I watched videos and learned. It was hard, but I loved it so much. A few of us created a group called Burlesque Bebe Dollz but that fell through, that was about 2 years before I auditioned for Winds but it spurred me. I finally got the courage to audition for them, then finally for E.. I was terrified I would not measure up to the likes of Babypea, Jilley, and Queenie and so forth. But here I am and I love it.

2. What do you enjoy the most about SL dance?
The beautiful creativity of peoples’ minds. What they create. And I have made some really good friends as well, people I truly love.

3. What do you enjoy the least about SL dance?
Cliques, and people not being honest or truly helpful, only out for themselves. Not that the whole community is like that, they aren’t most are amazing, and helpful. But you do have those who aren’t and that saddens me. But I think that is life in general really.
Oh and lag.. man I hate lag!! lolol

4. What has been your best experience in SL dance?
Getting to end the show at E with one of my early acts, that meant so much to me.. I did not realize what an honor it was, until I was told and I was so humbled by that. To have people I admire really like something I created, touched me deeply. That will always stay with me.

5. Out of all the dances you have done or participated in, which is your fave?
Oh I could not pick one… every person has done one I have just loved and every act with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 has come from my heart and meant something to me. I just love this dance community and the people in it.

6. What message would you like to leave for your fans or the dance community?
Just a huge thank you to those who have been friends to me and helped me or supported me… You all mean the world to me. Without those who come and support us we would be dancing for no one, and I would dance regardless. But to get to share it with so many is such a beautiful experience, and I am glad I never gave up.

7. Anything else you’d like to share?
I’d say, if you have a passion and you have a dream, go for it. Do not let set backs, or people take away your joy. Follow your heart and push through. You can do it.
