1. Other than teaching, dancing and writing what else do you have a passion for?

7. Tip about living on the road as a dancer?

Find time to be absolutely with self.  Also:  One thing at a time. One step at a time. One city at a time. Stay in every moment so as not to find yourself overwhelmed. Even the positive sensations can overload.  

                                                                             

8. How to stay fit on the road?  

Develop a regimen that can be done in the mornings at the hotel.  Find ways to do it without a gym by carrying push-up bars, kettle bells, or whatever will help.
