The rush of a dance competition the lights, costumes, competition, judges, and of course the awards. There’s nothing like it, it’s very overwhelming. The amazing thing is that I don’t get overwhelmed. I’m not nervous and not even a bit petrified, I’m not that kind of Dream Duffle. I’ve seen it all, been in this business for six and a half years.
