People don't realise how difficult it is to work with people day in and day out that know absolutely nothing.
Dancers are always striving for perfection. A great dancer never achieves it: you always want to do another turn, a higher jump,a more difficult acrobatic jump.
When I tell a child something the first time, I'm nice. The 15th time, I start to get aggravated.
I have good days and bad days.
I declared bankruptcy, and that was the worst thing I ever should have done.
I can take a beginner kid that has never danced in their lives, and I can teach them something, or I can take a really advanced dancer, and I can make them into a professional.
I have a little bit of PTSD when I hear a big bang or a loud noise or keys - I jump out of my skin.
TV's a big deal in prison. A big deal. People watch it nonstop.

I don't want a brat on my team.
Britney Spears was an incredible dancer. That kid was amazing.
I've taken so many kids out of Pittsburgh and onto the great white way in New York City right into a Broadway show.
My wheelchair is like the Cadillac of wheelchairs; it goes up and down and back, and I can lay down in it.
I'm a can-do girl.
I don't want flowers or candy or anything like that. I just want somebody to say, 'Wow, you've done a great job.'
I like to choreograph and create and design the costumes and do it all and then step back and watch it and then move on to the next project.
I was always interested in choreography - in making people think and feel something.
I had a PET scan, and it was cleared. Not one cell of cancer after three rounds of chemo. But I still had seven more just for safety, which was stupid. I should have just worked on therapy.
I'm not talent. Not considered 'talent' by Lifetime. I'd like to say I'm their savior, but that would be cocky.
I always thought I would die of cancer because my mom and my dad both died of cancer. My dad died of osteocancer, and my mom died of colon cancer.
