DP: Is there a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?
KJG: A song that always makes me happy when I hear it is “For the Longest Time” by Billy Joel. To this day, whenever I hear this song I think of dancing with my dad – twirling, leaping, standing on his toes. My earliest memories of dance are with my dad. He would turn on the radio on Sunday afternoons and my sisters and I would dance in the living room with him – taking turns getting filmed, improvising solos, and making dramatic entrances and exits.
