Q1: How did you get into dancing?
CO: I got into dancing at the age of 3. I started off with Ballet because my mom wanted me to be a gentle, elegant lady. Needless to say, I ended up absolutely loving it and I’m are still going strong 17 years later. ?
Q2: What style do you enjoy and are there any styles you struggle with?
CO: I love me some Latin! It is my absolute favorite style. I can’t say that there are any other specific styles that I really battle with, only when it comes to improvising and just dancing to any piece of music with no routine, that I find to be quite a challenge.
Q3: Talk us through your training sessions?
CO: My training sessions happen obviously when the Bulls Babes rehearse, but also mostly at home in my living room.
Q4: What does it mean to you when you dance at Loftus Versfeld?
CO: Dancing at Loftus, wow, that is a feeling so amazing it’s quite difficult to describe. Whenever I set foot on the field, I feel so strong and empowered, it’s crazy. I also feel so blessed that I get to perform and do what I absolutely love in an environment like that.
Q5: What do you do besides from being a Vodacom Bulls Babe?
CO: I’m a freelance dancer other than being a Vodacom Bulls Babe. I have decided to go study this year, to go part time into beauty as well, as that is another one of my passions.
Q6: Do you believe dance can change the world for the better and if so, why?
CO: I fully believe that dance can change the world. I think it’s a universal language that everyone shares and enjoys. I believe dancing comes naturally to everyone whether you do it professionally as a career or for fun. You just do small step tap, step tap when you hear a song, it’s something that every single person has inside them, it’s something we all have in common.
