MY SOUL REASON FOR DANCING... CHECK OUT THIS MINI FILM I WAS SO PROUD TO BE A PART OF!

Marking the 25th Anniversary of Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814, Anthony Thomas and his core group, The Nation, give you a behind the scenes experience of reintroducing a powerful movement to our generation. A movement that broke ground in our society.

This never before seen footage, dives into a communal force drilling and coming together as an army to deliver the message through this timeless choreography and all that it stands for. Unity.

THE RHYTHM NATION EXPERIENCE



Hello My ECUT&D FAM!!

Yours truly got to be apart of something I think is pretty awesome!!  Got to shoot a music video for the late GREAT Michael Jackson!!!   Not too long after his passing, his camp released his very last album and 2 music video's were shot after the release. I was in the second video, and I recently just found it on YouTube and I am so happy to be sharing it with you all!!    Hope you enjoy it!! 

You can spot me at (1:15sec) into the video, WHITE MASK with Michael breaking a guitar on the front!

Side note, I was apart of a dance number that was used, because they went with the Jabbawockeez (group in all white masks) instead. BUT you can see a split sec of me doing the Michael point at (1:38secs)

AMeiZING World Tour

_________________________________________________________________________

Hi everybody,    

Just sending a little update on what I've been up to.  Just got back from Asia, I was there for a month and a half.  I booked another Asian world tour with Taiwanese artist A-MEI!  She's like the Mariah Carey of Asia, but even bigger.   Tour started at the beginning of this month and goes till July of next year.   I'm having a blast, but it feels so good to be on a break... hahahaha.   I go back next Thursday, so I'm taking advantage of all the rest I can get, because this show dance wise is nooootttt a joke.  Here are a couple clips from the show.  The tour will be coming to Atlantic City soon.  Well that's my update; I hope all is well at my home away from home.   Miss and love you all!!!
