Transcript
"It was a must that after school we wouldn't play on the streets, but that we would be taken care of, so from 3 to 6 we were in the Settlement House, and that's where I saw dancing. I remember just looking in the room and seeing them dancing and I liked it, so I asked, could I join, and they said, 'Yes, of course,' and that was it. I joined the class and fell madly in love with dancing."
