Mya told JHud that she’s been dancing since she was 2 years old. “It’s inspiring to dance because, for example, if I’m happy, I can just express that when I’m dancing,” she said.
She’s already a professional performer, dancing alongside Mariah Carey during the singer’s latest Christmas tour. “That’s Mariah Carey in front of me!” she remembered thinking while performing with the music icon onstage.
Her idols are the legendary dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen, alongside artists Ciara, Janet Jackson, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez. Mya told JHud that her dream is to one day be their choreographer.
