"With every awful thing, there's also something beautiful with it."

Please welcome Allison Holker, a pro dancer, on-air personality, and Emmy-nominated choreographer, known for her incredible performances on Dancing with the Stars and as a host of Design Star: Next Gen. She’s here to talk about her new children’s book, “Keep Dancing Through: A Boss Family Groove,” which she co-authored with her late husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss. We’ll dive into their family’s daily rituals, the role of dance in their lives, and what’s next for Allison. But first, make sure to buy her new book for yourself and a couple friends.
