This course is not only designed to help navigate you to your goals and dreams, but also give you the blueprint to getting there quicker. I’ve learned so much in the past 20 years, things I had learned on the fly, on a job, in a rehearsal, on set, etc. I have so many personal stories to share and tips and tricks that no one would know or understand until you experience it. 

Although I am currently working in Choreography, Creative Director, Director roles.. I was a Professional Dancer first. I have gone through everything, from a struggling dancer, to a booking dancer, to a disappointed dancer, to an unbooked dancer, to a high demand dancer. I’ve experienced it all from one end of the gamut to the other. I have been on stages all around the world several times around, in countries I couldn’t even pronounce. I’ve danced in 50+ music videos, over 20 films, 20+ television shows & commercials, over 100 live tv shows, award shows, tour shows, and more. I have been truly blessed in my career and garnered so many working relationships with people in the dance community, artists, directors, producers, agents, choreographers, creative directors that have all contributed to my success.

"Kiki it happened!! I remember the day that you told me "Dreams Never Die" & I never forgot that. Thank you for pouring into me in my ATL days about this specific dream! I'll forever appreciate you for that..ALWAYS!! "
