Fik-Shun (born as Dushaunt Stegall) has captured the creative expression through dance. In just his 21 years of life, he’s discovered a special way to relate to music and movement. As a dancer he’s captivating; as a thinker he’s got his hand in the pulse of creativity.
He was a past winner of Season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance. He’s deeply committed to exploring the path toward mastery, and just like his relationship to music, he has a very unique take on mastery.
