Dance Mogul: You’ve been on the scene for a long time representing overseas, how have things changed for the better in terms of street dance and being embraced overseas?
Sally Sly: Yes, that’s true street dance has changed a lot. But I adapt depending on my time, it’s not worse or better it’s just different because the information of hip hop dance is more easily accessible (YouTube, Facebook etc ) before we just imagined.
Dance Mogul: When did the business of dance start to pick up overseas to where now all the biggest events are overseas?
Sally Sly: Some people think the business of dance is better when we travel. It’s not true for me, I win more money. When I stay in Switzerland because I’m working almost every day. I started my dance work After winning B-BOY Summit, UK championships, and Juste Debout.
