On his favorite style of dance:
“I guess jazz was always my favorite when I started. I think I got to be more of a character doing jazz. Ballet is restrictive, and tap (is) about the sounds and the rhythm. But jazz, I could show more of my personality onstage, and it was a lot more fun, too. I love it (today) for exactly the same reasons.”
