INDI STAR - Just Might Dance (Official Music Video)
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Three words I would use to describe myself are adventurous, happy and kind.
Who is your biggest supporter?
I would say my biggest supporters are definitely my mom, dad, my sisters and my brother. They help me so much and support me through anything.
How’s a typical day in your life?
I am pretty busy on most days. Each day can be very different based on what I have on my schedule. Normally I would wake up, take a shower, get dressed and then have some breakfast. I can cook but my sister Azalea is a really good cook and if I’m lucky, she’ll make me some eggs or pancakes! I try to get my school done in the morning before I start on anything else but sometimes I will do school at night depending on my schedule. I have been homeschooled my whole life. I only went to Kindergarten for public school! I make content throughout the day, wether that’s TikTok, Instagram Reels, taking photos for Instagram or filming a Youtube video:) I also make time throughout the day to keep up on my singing as well. To just relax and have some down time, I like to draw, play video games and skateboard.
When did you start dancing?
I started dancing at the age of 3 at a local dance studio on the East Coast but started taking professional dance classes at age 8 in Los Angeles when I moved out here with my family.
Did you take dancing classes?
Yes! When I first moved to Los Angeles, I would take dance class 4 – 6 times a week!
Any advice for aspiring dancers?
Work hard even when things get tough, you will get through it:) It’s hard to see your own progress in dance because you may improve slowly with each dance class. Take video of yourself weekly or monthly doing the dances you are working on and view them together after a few months and you will see your progress!
What do you love most about dancing?
My favorite part about dancing is that I get to express my emotions through my dancing. Physical expression of emotions can be a very powerful thing!
What type of dance do you like best?
My favorites dance styles are ballet, acro and contemporary.
Now tell us about being a popular influencer?
I feel honored to have a following on social media. I have worked hard to get to where I am and I hope that people understand that it does take hard work and dedication.
You are followed by so many young girls. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?
It’s insane because so many young people do follow me and I also know that a lot of my followers are younger than me. It’s really hard to always do the right thing, because on social media everybody is watching your every move. I try to stay positive and spread love and light on social media. No one is perfect and there are stresses that come along with being in the public eye. I try to always take very seriously that girls look to me as a role model and I try my best to show them good actions and positive attitudes.
On the acting side, tell us about your work on Nickelodeon’s HENRY DANGER?
It was so much fun! I loved working on Henry danger. One of my favorite memories is definitely when I found out Jace Norman’s stunt double is a woman!
What other projects you have been part of?
I have a new movie in post production called The Hyperions coming out this year (hopefully!) I played a superhero and I am really excited to see it! I’ve also done many national commercials and I recently wrapped working on Dead To Me where I was a reccurring dancer.
Do you have a favorite actress or actor that inspires you?
One of my favorite actresses right now is Zendaya. I loved watching her progression from The Disney Channel to taking on more mature roles like Euphoria.
Now tell us about your first hit single “Just Might Dance?”
My song “Just Might Dance” is about a girl that feels like she’s not good enough and that she has some emotional issues, and I’m telling her that not only is she good enough but that every girl is good enough.
What is the feeling to have over 100k streams on Spotify? That’s amazing! Congrats!
Thank you so much! It’s really incredible, I can’t believe it!!! It’s really a slow build to see the streams come in but the more hard work you put in, the better your result will be! I was lucky to work with Jenga Productions when I first moved to Los Angeles and I have been with them since I moved here.
Best advice ever given?
Don’t listen to others opinions on you, you are the only opinion about yourself that should matter. You are the only one that truly knows yourself.
What we can expect of Indi Star in the last months of 2020?
I am coming out with a new original song this month! It’s called “All My Friends”. I just recorded the video for the song as well so watch for that on Youtube soon! Also I just recorded a holiday season duet with JD McCrary, another member of the Vibe Crew.
What are the five things you can’t live without?
My phone definitely, Skincare items😂, a blanket, Netflix, and my family.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I would wanna meet Melanie Martinez, because she just seems so sweet and fun to be around. She is definitely my musical idol because not only is she a musical genius but she extends her music into a true art form.
What is your own definition of happiness?
My definition of happiness would definitely be just living in the moment, feeling free and not having a worry in the world.

Your idea of a perfect Sunday is?
I just had one recently. We first went to get breakfast, next we went to a skatepark, and then went to the beach, and after that we got fast fooooood.
Do you support any charities?
One of my favorite charities to support is the City Year event that happens each year at the Sony studio lot. City Year is a program that unites students and community service.
What do you think of Social Media as you are a big influencer in this category?
I think social media is a great place to showcase your creative and content creation skills and show them to the world. Social media can also can also get very negative so that’s not fun. You have to have thick skin to be on social media!
