Q1: How did you get into dancing?
KF: I started dancing when I was about 15. I’ve always loved hip hop and my mom put me in classes, which then lead to competing.
Q2: What style do you enjoy and are there any styles you struggle with?
KF: I love hip hop and Latin American. I do struggle with the more classic styles like ballet because I never took classes.
Q3: Talk us through your training sessions?
KF: In terms of training sessions for the Vodacom Bulls Babes, we have rehearsal twice a week. We start with a warm up and some conditioning such as kicks, turns and jumps. We then run through our routines and end in prayer.
Q4: What does it mean to you when you dance on Loftus Versfeld?
KF: Dancing on Loftus is such a blessing and a privilege. It’s an opportunity not many get and it makes me very happy to be on the field supporting the team and having the crowd support us as well.
Q5: What do you do besides from being a Vodacom Bulls Babe?
KF: I am a freelance dancer/artist. I also studied fashion design and I am currently working on a streetwear clothing line.
Q6: Do you believe dance can change the world for the better and if so, why?
KF: Yes, I do. Dance is not only a sport, it’s a pastime that plenty of people enjoy. It’s an activity that makes people smile and brings people together. The world is already better when people are having a great time dancing.
