Sweet sweet Chelsie Hightower. Easily one of the most chill, grounded, and positive people you'll ever meet. And a super amazing dancer. So much so that she spent 8 seasons on Dancing with the Stars as well as multiple seasons on So You Think You Can Dance.
She's worked with amazing people that are at the top of their game, while maintaining her humility and groundedness. Despite seeing all these successes, Chelsie was very open with me about feeling inadequate to be on the show. She felt a lot of anxiety through the process, but used it as fuel to perform to the best of her abilities.
Finally after years of personal growth and development, she realized that everyone had their inadequacies and were all "faking it till they made it." Learning these valuable lessons, she's creating multiple dance programs teaching young girls that you don't have to place your value on any external award from dancing.
They can learn that they have infinite value already and dancing can be an expression of the value they already have. Powerful messages. Chelsie has an incredible story and I'm grateful she came on the podcast and shared! Hope you enjoy!
