I’ve often heard that dancers make the best people. Dancers are some of the hardest working people in the world. The dedication and determination it takes to be a professional dancer is incredible. When a dancer decides to take that discipline to the next level and become pro, he or she has to find a way to survive, how to pay your bills, take regular class, audition, get to the gym, call your Mom and just make it work! Learning to juggle it all and still succeed is the ultimate goal. On today’s episode, we’re talking to two different dancers who’ve chosen different ways to make it work. They’ve found different ways to support themselves while still being involved in the dance world. Let’s go Beyond the Mirror, in Episode 3: The Hustle.
