Episode 1: Stephanie Klemons
When Pulitzer, Grammy, Emmy and Tony award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda describes you as the "hero of every company in every time zone", you best believe you have jewels of wisdom to share. In this interview, I chat with associate choreographer and global dance supervisor of the mega-smash hit musical @hamiltonmusical (amongst other amazing credits... and soon-to-be mom!), Stephanie Klemons. Stephanie shares her journey on how she got into one of the most coveted positions in 'the room where it happens', the lessons learned along the way, her observations on South Asian & minority representation having auditioned thousands of dancers/performers around the world, and for my fellow performers out there dreaming of becoming #HAMFAM, what the creative team looks for when hiring their cast(s). She also shares her philanthropic efforts with @katiesartproject (in memory of her best friend) and so much more.
