Cleo Parker Robinson, internationally celebrated dance teacher, choreographer and founder of her own dance studio, inspires dancers at all levels and with various challenges to use dance to discover themselves and like who they are.
Listen as Cleo discusses with Nicole of Girl Scouts of Colorado the importance of having role models that you identify with and that inspire you. Cleo also explains how she overcame being discriminated against for not being black or white and encourages people to be themselves and accepting of others.
Cleo’s advice to our listeners is to follow your dreams and be committed to living, be good to people, try lots of things and then select at least one thing to become really good at doing.
