WANDERLUST: a strong desire or urge to travel and explore the world. . . As I plan for my next set of adventures I reflect on last years monumental “year of water”. I spent more time in the ocean, lakes and rivers than I have ever done in my life. It’s important for me to fill my life out with as many experiences as possible. The balance between working extremely hard and getting lost in nature has become my desired pendulum of creating an excited and dynamic life. Here’s to many more. #adventure #life #gopro #exciting #dynamic

So I know there’s already a “Lord of dance”, but what about “The Earl of dance” or “Duke of Dance”? Maybe the Lord and lady of Highclere Castle can hook me up with that title. Fingers crossed🤞🏼 #downtownabbey #highclerecastle #earlofdance #dukeofdance

Truly an honor to be awarded the Role Model Award at the @industrydanceawards along side my sister @juleshough . I’ve been so fortunate to have a career where I am able to use my body, be creative, meet amazing people and travel the world. The best part of it all is to share it. I look forward to collaborating with people in the future who inspire and push me to be better and grow. If there is one thing I have learned from everything is, ITS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU ACHIEVE, ITS ABOUT WHO YOU BECOME AS A HUMAN BEING ALONG THE WAY. The pursuit to be a better human is the most fulfilling part of the journey 🙏🏼 much love #dance #life

Throwback ! 2004 competing with my partner Aneta Piotrowska in Poland. This was just a short intro before the Final round actually begun. Usually there are multiple couples on the floor dancing at the same time. A typical competition starts at 9am and goes until 11pm. Sometimes later. Technique, practice and finesse are important but in those final rounds it really just came down to stamina. Cause if you didn’t have the energy you couldn’t execute the technique or the quality of movement. I struggled a lot competing because I didn’t like to eat on the day before I danced. But like I said, those comps lasted ALL day with multiple rounds, so I remember running on fumes just trying to get through. Competing taught me work ethic, how to be goal orientated and gave me a competitive drive that has stayed with me. Also, my partner was dating this guy with brown hair, and I thought if I died my hair brown she would like me.The things we do when we’re young. #dance #ballroom #latin #samba #competition #quickhips

#tbt the process collaborating with @audreycase @makenzie_dustman and the mind bending @phillipchbeeb for my tour. Unfortunately this particular section didn’t make it into the tour. I honestly can’t remember why exactly but I love it and thought I would share a rough video of us figuring it out. I love collaborating with creative minds, especially ones that go places I might not instinctually go. #dance #creativity #process

When we continuously think and feel a certain way for so long, we can get caught in a never ending loop of thoughts and patterns that hypnotize us into believing we are not enough. We believe this is all there is, this is as good as it gets. We are in a trance. It’s time to END the TRANCE and to consciously shift and TRANSCEND beyond our limiting beliefs.

Wow! This has been such an incredible journey. I’m not going to lie, at the beginning there was some questions behind the idea of embarking on a solo tour. “Will people come?” “Can I physically do it?” Etc. . . But every time those questions and doubts would creep into my head I realized my focus was in the wrong place. I would catch it and consistently remind myself of my true intentions of WHY I do what I do. . . TO CREATE. To create ART, to create ENERGY, to create FRIENDSHIPS, a shared experience with the audience, to create JOY,BEAUTY, understanding, LAUGHTER, LOVE, FUN. Amazing things can happen when you consistently remind yourself to stay on purpose. . . Having the honor to share my passions with so many is something I will never take for granted. And to be able to share these experiences with such an extraordinary group of talented dancers, musicians and crew is a true gift. . . I want to thank all the people who came to the shows, your love and energy was felt beyond words. I am already planning the next adventure and hope to see you all again. Until next time ...

For years my Dad and I talked about going on trips and to try and see each other more often. “We should spend more time together” “Someday we should do this, someday we should that” until one day we decided to change our “should’s” into “must’s”. We MUST go! We MUST spend more time together. . . Ever since we made that little shift, we have gone on some amazing trips and adventures together. Spending quality time and building exciting memories as father and son. . . Today I am grateful for all the time I get to spend with my Dad, especially learning what a “smile break” is.😌 A necessity while being on the river for 4 days straight 👍🏼 I look forward to more adventures with you Dadio! #happyfathersday #gopro

Getting lost among nature is one of my favorite ways to connect to that inner stillness within. . Listen closely and you will hear whisperings. Follow them, and eventually you will discover a voice so distinct in its peaceful stillness that it will cut through the noise of the most confusing days. #gopro @gopro

Before hitting the stage I go through a very specific set of pre-show rituals. These rituals force me into a positive state to produce energy and a high performance I couldn’t achieve without them. We become our habits/rituals. Choose ones that serve you. And be aware of the ones that don’t. #healthyrituals #gopro #thetour

So my dad flew in for a few hours just to surprise me for my birthday. And when he showed up he said “ Well I didn’t know what to give you, so I thought I would give you a hug.” At the end of the show, I couldn’t think of a better way to end my birthday, than to live out those special moments we shared on these long road trips back in the day, singing “Born to Run” at the top of our lungs. But this time rocking out on stage. TOGETHER!!!! What a night 🙏🏼 Love you Dad

I was thinking about what I was going to post for my birthday and thought there isn’t anything better than this. First of all, this is freaking adorable and also this is where it all began. This amazing woman carried me for 9 months and continued to care for me all through out my life. She introduced me to the concept of being creative and always encouraged me to pursue my interests and passions. As you can see this woman (my mom) is a bright light with a sense of fun, wonderment and has an urge to bust out spontaneous dance solos! So Today for my birthday let’s join my mom by doing the #1minuteMiniMove and get to shakin and bakin our booties and have some Fun doing it👍🏼!!! Love you mom, thank you for creating me.❤️
