Sexy Dance A GoGo instructor Andrea Lin assesses Mr. Media’s moves—and finds he has none!

Andrea Lin’s fascination with dance began as a child after reading stories about characters who devoted their lives to becoming prima ballerinas. She began formal ballet training in her native Taiwan. But before long the rigorous Taiwanese educational system forced her to devote more than 10 hours a day to more “practical” studies. Even though Andrea gained acceptance to Taiwan’s most prestigious university by placing second in the national exams, she was not willing to sacrifice her dream of a career in dance:

"I never wanted to look back at my life with regrets, knowing that I never pursued my dreams due to my cowardice. I wanted a life worth living - not guided by fear. I was driven by passion, not courage."

Andrea worked as an English instructor and scrimped and saved enough money to move to the U.S. to pursue her dream. At the age of eighteen, she moved to New York where she expanded her dancing repertoire to include jazz, hip-hop, and musical theater. The pulsing, creative energy of her new home energized her to surpass her original goals.

She has been a featured dancer in music videos for Madonna, Britney Spears, Lenny Kravitz, P. Diddy, Lil’ Kim, and Mariah Carey, among others.

Andrea’s new dance instruction DVD is now available featuring Hip-Hop, Ballroom, Salsa & Cutting Edge Moves.
