Interview with Lexus.Layden (@lexus.layden)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My passion is for dance and movement. Being able to express myself through dance.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I was always shy but being able to express my feelings through dance has really opened up my personality.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep a great balance between work, doing it for fun, and steeping away to get small breaks.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I would say, my parents. They both were professional motocross racers which made them very dedicated to training, working, and enjoying what they did for a living. They support me in all of my training across the country to keep me at my peak.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I dance at fundraisers for kids with cancer to help with donations. I also love to show kids that you can express your feelings through dance.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Hard work always beats talent. So keep your head down and put the work in to be YOUR best not someone else’s.
