Gotmix: What’s your story?
Lundy: I born in Houston, TX. I am an only child. I grew up to be a strong independent woman. As a child I was very intelligent, outgoing and friendly. I always stood out because of my unique height (I’m 4’9). I had a great life coming up as a kid. I always knew I would achieve greatness, but sometimes I would wonder how in the world would I be able to make that happen. I’m thankful to my parents for all of the guidance, encouragement and leadership they have contributed to my success.
Gotmix: What is your training and background in dance?
Lundy: When I was 3 years old my mother enrolled me into tap, jazz, ballet and gymnastics class at a local studio in Alvin, TX. Sadly, when I turned 5 my dance teacher moved to Mississippi. My parents and I moved to Rosharon, TX to live closer to their families, but there were no dance studios in the area. I didn’t dance again until I was 13 years old. That’s when I joined my middle school’s dance team. From there I joined my high school dance team at 14 years old and danced all the way to my senior year. After that I danced in college at Texas State University. I also received my minor in dance from Texas State. Then when I graduated, I pursued my professional dance career as a dance performer, choreographer and teacher.
Gotmix: How long have you been teaching?
Lundy: I’ve been teaching dance since I was 15 years old. Educationally, this is my 1st year a certified teacher.

Lundy: Ballet, Contemporary and Hip-Hop.
Gotmix: What style of dance are you most interested in teaching?
Gotmix: What age group do you prefer to teach?

Gotmix: What inspires you in your teaching?
Lundy: That I’m able to positively influence someone’s life by sharing my passion for dance.
Gotmix: How do you inspire your students?
Lundy: I share my experiences with them. I also tell them to never give up and to never let anyone stop them from achieving their goals.
Gotmix: Have you ever choreographed for dance recitals, performances, and/or dance competitions?
Lundy: Yes! I choreographed tons of pieces for all types of performances. It’s something I enjoy a lot. I started choreographing at 13 years old.
Gotmix: Who are some of your mentors and role models and why?
Lundy: My role model is my Aunt Melanie. She is my mom’s youngest sister. We are close in age, so she’s kind of like the big sister I never had (since I’m an only child). She’s a very successful woman who takes care of business and makes things happen. She doesn’t hold back and is always striving for greatness. She’s also kind, caring and loving. I also admire the encouragement and advice she always gives me. She’s been a huge supporter since day one and I’m very thankful she’s been a part of my life.
Gotmix: What advice do you give young girls that look up to you?
Lundy: I tell them to listen to their intuition. (Trust YOURSELF) When I was younger, I wish I would have done that more.
Gotmix: What would you say your biggest accomplishment thus far?
Lundy: I think all of my accomplishments are great! I graduated from college early, worked with a multitude of professional dancers, been invited to Los Angeles to dance, being hired as a high school dance coach to help educate students about the world of dance, etc.
Gotmix: How do you help the world become a better place?
Lundy: I always try to keep a positive attitude. No matter how bad things may seem, a positive attitude and mindset will get you through the tough times and will help you keep going. Whenever I see a student that is discouraged, sad or angry I try to help them understand the benefits and power of having a positive attitude.
