HOW DID YOU START DANCING ?
It all started back when i was in secondary school. I was privileged to be part of a group called (wonders on earth) in Kaduna state. I performed in the children’s’ department choreography in church where i focused and learnt basic moves which i solely enjoyed as a teen. In 2008 I joined another group called (world explorer). At this point i became more conversant with the hip hop style which took more of my energy, passion, zeal, courage, love for dancing, focus and time management skills . I spent hours on the internet downloading songs and video compilation from various sites and channels. I went as far as downloading e-books online so i can read and digest on how to be a great dancer because dance is art. I did all these with the help of God and the self motivation i gave myself. I put more effort day and night, learning new skills and style and also self criticism whenever i made mistakes or it took longer period to learn a particular style. I also learned to understand the spirit of dance and to believe in what I was doing and to also believe that learning never ends. May 2013, I joined *Called Out Krew*( C.O.K) which transformed my life around dance and it was absolutely gracious i must say.
