The Other You: Michelle
Michelle is a fierce-as-f*ck dancer from Boston with a strong background in Dancehall Reggae and Hip Hop. Michelle has performed alongside artists such as Mr. Vegas and Elephant Man and has worked with EDM DJ’s Pauly D, Aoki, Armin van Buuren and more. When she leads, she dances with pure heart and soul.
What was your childhood fantasy?
I was a motorcycle girl with super powers from my smoke that would make people dance when we drove by doing tricks. My cousin and I would put squirts of those little Bug Juices in back of the tire so it would make a blblblblblbl noise. Yep, that's a sound LOL.
Other than being a dancer, what other creative would you like to be known for?
I also model. At first I would never say I was a model, as I only did it to have better photos for flyers during my Dancehall Queen competition days. I usually figure model for art schools and I've had the pleasure of being part of a charity calendar for the Pin Ups and Food Truck Festival of New England, and in 2015 I won the Ms. City Chic modeling competition.
#TheOtherYou is about stepping out your Clark Kentress and into your Superwoman. What’s the one superpower you would have if you could?
It probably be teleportation. It'd get me out of sooo many uncomfortable situations. Like if I was having bad sex, I'd be like *bloop* I'm outta here. But also, I could be at anyone's side right away if they were in trouble- WITH my motorcycle. OOOOOOOooop (See what I did there?).
We know your energy in class is fierce as f*ck. What’s your personality like when you’re not in class?
When I'm not teaching ((305)), I'm VERY to myself. I don't know if it's a good thing to be in your head so much, but I find it calming from all the chaos sometimes.
What’s the advice #TheOtherYou gives you, that you don’t always follow IRL?
She says to stop working with people who don't value you- something I'm constantly working on.
