I met the very talented Mo’Nique during her visit to Hampton Roads when she came by my show to promote her appearance at the Virginia Beach Funny Bone. I really didn’t know what to expect…I think part of me still sees her as her Academy Award winning character from Precious! LOL! But seriously, she couldn’t have been more genuine and sweet…I was really in awe of what a true professional she is. I get to meet all kinds of people in my line of work and I can sincerely say she is top notch.
Check out the video below to see her interview. She came to the show with her friend and opening act TONE X, and we chatted about her doing the plank challenge, being Mommy’s to boys and she even shared her thoughts on Robin Williams, who coincidentally was the person who presented her the Oscar when she won in 2009. I can’t wait for the next time my path crosses with this amazing lady.
It’s that time again! The Going Pro Expo is making a tour stop in Miami in exactly one month … MARCH 10, 2013!! I am so excited to be coordinating this event for the 3rd year in a row and this time around we’ve changed up the format to appeal to more women looking to “GO PRO” in the dance, cheer and entertainment industry! This year, we truly have an ALL-STAR lineup of choreographers and presenters. On the schedule we have 4 separate “master dance classes” for those of you looking to brush up and/or learn new choreography, all taught by outstanding professionals with NFL, NBA, NHL and collegiate experience. Then we have full workshops and seminars on fitness, pageantry, broadcasting, pro team cheer & dance, etc… We even have a session devoted to social media!
This event is open to women who are alumni, current or aspiring entertainment professionals! It’s the perfect place to brush up on your skills, learn new material, find out all about the Pro Team Cheer & Dance Industry, Pageantry and Fitness…but most of all you can ask our experts all the questions you want. General registration gains you access to all workshops and even some “sidelines” sessions, then you can pick and choose which dance classes you want to take, or enroll in them all — the more you dance, the more you will improve, plus networking and making new friends & contacts never hurts!
The 2013 Miami Going Pro Expo is also the perfect place for pro, semi-pro and college cheer and dance teams to pick up new choreography to take to their own sidelines as well as great advice and tips on performance, makeup, hair & presentation, while enjoying a fun team building experience!

They do a segment on the site called “six pack of questions,” since the site revolves around sports with the feeling of being in the corner of a sports bar… So we talk a little about me, where I’ve been and what I’m hoping to do!! You can read all about it here…
