Dance Signature Move:
Moved from Georgia to L.A. last Halloween, so she could start auditioning: “I was scared out of my mind. Who knew that, in a year, this is where I would be My family is just jumping for joy. They’re so excited and proud.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
From Fox Dance Profile:
I started dance when I was 3 years old at The Dance Connection, which was a studio owned by my mom. Not too long after she closed her studio to attend college for nursing, I began dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio which was the studio my mom also grew up at. I quit when I was 10, after a year with no dance I decided I couldn’t live without it. I resumed my training at the same studio. My sophomore year of high school I began to take my dancing more seriously, on top of performing/competing with my “home” studio, I began attending a separate school for ballet training.
After high school, at the age of 18, I moved straight to Los Angeles to begin more training and auditioning. I recently worked on a small part in the remake of Fame and I’m now honored to say that I am a part of SYTYCD Season 6. This is only the beginning of my journey and I can’t wait to see what is in store for me on this show and in the future.
