Mentor and Mentee: India Patterson

July 7th, 2018


I’ve had the pleasure to be following and guiding India into the magnificent dancer she is today since she was a very little girl in Elementary School. I always saw so much greatness in India, even at a very young age. Over the last three years, I have been intensely training India for her future plans of becoming a professional dancer. When she entered into high school I officially became her mentor. India participates in all of my projects and is always there when I need her. I have set numerous solos on her and have prepared her for many performances. It’s a blessing to be apart of her life and to truly sew into her success. I am so excited for her future. India will be performing with me in my Emerging Artist showcase on the 27th. I look forward to seeing her shine. This summer we spent everyday together training for two hours a day. It was a tough process for her but she handled it like a champ. I am very happy with the progression she made this summer. She is currently in her Junior of high school. We will be focusing on her advancing technically and preparing for next years college auditions. India is a wonderful performer, with such an extraordinary stage presence. If she continues to apply herself and maintain a high level of focus the sky is truly the limit for her.

Below I have attached some pics of our time together this summer!
