Second chance

I thought, by the time I came into AA, that I was too old to ever dance professionally. I came to AA before my 25th birthday. I was more than two years sober and 28 years old when God put a professional job in front of me. My sponsor at the time heard that a choreographer in Miami, which was only a couple of hours away, was looking for dancers. 

So I packed up my suitcase and went to Miami. I believe God has always been my agent. I would show up for casting cattle calls. It didn’t matter how many people were there, somehow I’d get hired. Others had agents but I was getting phone calls for shows or private auditions. God is great.
