Dance Boss Podcast

Nov 11, 2021

I grew up in an inner-city. 

And I know what it’s like not to be privy to certain opportunities...

Years later I started teaching in an inner-city school.

So I bend over backward for my students.

And other people like me who teach in urban communities and love their students, know the challenge of bending over backward to get them opportunities.

It touches my heart whenever I meet people who give of themselves and create opportunities to help others. Today’s guest is one of those people.

Ava Otto is an 11-year-old professional dancer, working model, and soon-to-be nonprofit business owner. She is crushing it as a young dance boss, and we talk:

  • Her professional career
  • How she balances her professional and personal lives
  • And, her upcoming nonprofit business
