Happy top of the week! Today, we have an OG dance community head that you might recognize as the resident DJ on @theellenshow. Stephen @sir_twitch_alot Boss came from the grassroots dance community and broke his way into Hollywood.
Twitch, has done everything from competing on shows like Star Search, The Wade Robson Project, and So You Think Can Dance, and found himself as a runner-up in all those shows. He didn’t let the loss from these shows take him off his path to make his mark for dance. He kept pushing, and in doing so found opportunities to venture into other disciplines such as acting and hosting.
The gold about Twitch’s story is not all the accolades and projects he’s been on, but really his sharply focused “WHY.” In this chat, Twitch really breaks down the importance of being honest and true with yourself.
He says that at the end of the day, the “hustle” just becomes noise that will never quiet down until you figure out what is authentic to you. This couch conversation goes deep and hits home in the realest way.
So excited for you guys to get into it. Happy Inspos!

I won't list it here but I suggest listening to around 1:06:50 is straight fire.
Discipline vs. Inspiration.
