Over the past week I've started to feel my passion for dance resurface slowly but surely. I kinda entered into semi-retirement once I made the move from L.A. to Atlanta(it actually began once I met my ex...long story). But once a dancer always a dancer. The next step is actually getting off my butt and from in front of my computer and back into class regularly(maybe I'll drop the 10 pounds I've gained over the past 6 months too).

Last weekend I found inspiration unexpectedly from the film Hairspray and from one of the dancers that has ironically named me as one of his inspiratons. I grew up dancing with Stephen "Twitch" Boss in Montgomery, Alabama at summer theater camps at ASU and the Alabama Dance Theater. He later gained national attention after appearing on Star Search, The Wade Robson Project and recently the new movie Hairspray. Stephen is a living example of what can be achieved with hard work and dedication. The above video is of Stephen freestyling to Amerie's "I Just Died". Brace yourselves for this dance break from Stephen "Twitch" Boss.

Hi. I've been hoping to reach Stephen "tWitch" Boss since the finale of "So You Think You Can Dance". I was pulling for him, but I have to admit, I'm happy for Joshua. I want to acknowledge what a true gentleman tWitch is. His reaction to Joshua's win was so refreshing. Raising Joshua's arm in victory, and being so exuberantly happy for him. tWitch, if you read this, I wish you only the best, and pray that great and wonderful things come your way. You truly deserve all this world has to offer. You are an inspiration.

Hi. I'm hoping to can get a message to tWitch. I was so impressed with his reaction to Joshua's win on SYTYCD. What a genuine gentleman. They both deserved to win, but tWitch's response to Joshua was so positive and supportive. I'm sure tWitch as disappointed, but I've no doubt that great things are headed his way. He showed the world that he not only is an amazing dancer, he has more class in his little finger than most people could achieve in a lifetime. Thank you, tWitch, for showing all of us what it means to be truly gracious. God Bless You.
