Really depends on the mood but top 3, Musicals, Pop, and Deep house.   What is your favorite movie or TV show? The Pursuit of Happiness.   If you could be one animal, which one would you be and why? An eagle! Their freedom to fly: soar, dive, flip, turn, glide, stretch out their wings yet at the same time be on top of the food chain! AWESOME ANIMAL!   What's your favorite food? Japanese Ramen.   How/Why did you start dancing? Mother insisted I take this activity, plus I sucked at soccer and more girls did dance!   What do you want most out of life? Experience and Happiness around me. Doing things to the max!   What do you like most about teaching dance? Making them happy, inspiring them, opening up their minds.   What is your favorite quote?
