Dance BIO Deborah Hughes

If life in dance could be defined, it would be embodied within Debõrah.  She was born in Orangeburg and raised Greenwood in South Carolina to an artistic family that creatively influenced her love for the arts. She was exposed to everything from dance, fashion, music and drama. From those experiences growing up she knew this was something she wanted to do all her life. That is when she coined the phrase ARTrepreneur meaning pursing the business of Art. She has danced for various artists and companies from around the world, allowing her to travel with her craft.

She likes to think of herself as an independent philanthropist that builds people through her Art. Teaching them to obtain and maintain the confidence they’ll need to dance through life. She is very detailed in her observation and assessment of items and people. Debõrah says, “I love to interact with people from all different facets of life, as well as being able to handle multiple personalities. I enjoy trying different things and if called upon, I don’t mind speaking my opinion. I’m always looking to expand my career in dance.
