FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU SAY “CAPEZIO”
‘Leotard’ - when I was younger my dance teacher made me wear a Capezio Leotard! Even though it wasn’t the most ideal first costume for a male, it felt good!!
FAVORITE CAPEZIO ITEM
K360 Taps - without a doubt.
BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR OTHER DANCERS
Always remember that ‘Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard’.. Never stop wanting to learn & experience new styles.
