Q & A WITH TARA LAFERRARA
You dance a lot on social media — do you consider yourself a dancer? Turn on your favorite jam and move your body to the music, then try and tell me it doesn’t put an instant smile on your face. You don’t have to be a dancer to dance, and I dance because it makes me feel good — and because it may even put a smile on someone else’s face.
What was it like to grow up with three brothers?
Well, childhood was about stitches and yelling at each other! As I grew up (and my mom finally let me play sports), I outran my brothers, got stronger than them and ultimately — and they may kill me for saying this — became more athletic than them. But truthfully, they have always been super supportive.
What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Most people probably don’t know how much of a sap I really am. I cried the last time I got a really good haircut!
The latest show I binge-watched was … Bridgerton.
If I won the lottery, I’d … work to end homelessness and travel around the world.
True or False: I’m a neat freak. Trueish.
I love burpees. False.
I would go bungee jumping. True! I already have in South Africa.
I’ve eaten a whole box of Girl Scout cookies in one sitting. False. But if it were ice cream ...
I hate cats. True. Dogs are lyfe!
