CLUB DANCE BLOG - MOVES, LESSONS, AND TIPS

Dear Friends and Students, As some of you who follow me may know, I have a separate personal blog where I write about travel and personal development.  I also made some popular inspirational videos such as The Sunscreen Song Tribute and Dance Like No One Is Watching.  This is something I've always been passionate about.  Long story short, I never stopped filming my exploits, but I was just making short clips to make more inspirational videos like I did before....
