All About Debbie

Welcome back to Dayanisma’s 12-part blog series highlighting our 12 troupe members! We are re-introducing ourselves to tell you a little more about us as dancers and to share a little about our lives outside of dance. We would love to hear about what we have in common with YOU!

Debbie Richardson

Favorite food:  Dawn’s Brownies

Favorite dance move: Shoulder Shimmy Hip Drop

How long have you been dancing: 10 yrs.

What do you do when you are not dancing: Hanging out with my family, church and meeting with friends.

Tell us about your family:  I’ve been married to Burt for 27 yrs. and we have 3 handsome sons.

How did you get into dance:  It started with a show called “Shimmy” back in the day. And my husband encouraged me to look for classes. When I looked for classes I found cabaret, but I quickly realized that it wasn’t for me. The next search led me to Patti Beaman. And I was hooked.

Favorite song to dance to: This is hard because there are so many good ones but...Burn it Up by Janet Jackson and Kali Sara by Josh Workman

Anything else you want to share: ATS® has given me so many dance sisters and brothers and I will always be grateful for that.
