Most Embarassing Moment
A few years ago, after only two weeks of dance, I had to go on an audition for a movie called OZ…where I had to dance…in front of Paula Abdul. I danced like a stiff board with only two moves that I had just learned, and I felt so embarrassed. Other girls had been taking dance their whole lives, and did really impressive moves, so I promised myself I would work hard to learn as much as I could in EVERYTHING, so I wouldn’t EVER have to be embarrassed like that again.
