Happy 2022 and welcome to Episode 159 of the DanceSpeak Podcast with our very special guest, Solange Zindzi. Solange is a professional dancer who has toured the world with her artistry in dance and as a model, and is the author of the book 'Solo Jump.'
Originally from the Netherlands, Solange's journey spans continents and includes quite the career crossover. In this episode, Solange shares about her decision to come to New York City to pursue a career in dance and her choice to move to Los Angeles after. We also get into what it's like dancing on cruise ships (a significant industry for dancers) and touring the world with international super star Chayanne.
Chatting with Solange gave me insight on how vital it is to listen to your gut, how the pandemic can also be an incredibly creative time, and how to trust in the journey regardless of how it looks at any given moment.
We also got into Solange's step-by-step process of bringing her book from an idea to a finished piece of literature and how she even had fun in the process (who knew, right?!).
Are you ready to kick off your year with some serious inspiration? Then this episode is for you.
