Martina Peter, the award-winning Whiskey Mistress Dancer has revealed that she is putting a lot of effort into opening one of the biggest and most entertaining dance studio in Abuja.
The 22-years-old stated this in a chat with journalists in Abuja saying that “I am working on opening a big dance studio in Abuja where people can learn the art of dance.
Martina said, “this is not limited to only females, it’s going to both, old and young, something of exercise because dancing can keep you fit and you can also use it for leisure.
“Everything starts with God and our determination as well, once you are determined, there is nothing you won’t achieve. You have to take a step at a time, but then I believe that with my consistency and with my current team, I can actualize my dreams by having the biggest dance studio in Abuja with branches in other states.”
When asked if she has shared this with her boss, she said, “Mrs. Adenike Isi Adeeko is the type of boss that encourages you to dream big, and she has put this big dream in my head.
“She encourages us not to pay attention to small things, because those big ones that people are having, you can have as well because they don’t have two heads and if you set your mind to it, you are going to have it.
“I have spoken to her about being a partner with her and she said she wouldn’t mind partnering with me and we could start something together.”
On what motivated her about dancing she explained that, “right from when I was little, I loved to dance and I won a series of awards at little age and was always happy. Dancing keeps me going and it takes my mind off many things like worries, stress and so many ups and downs and some personal problems. “
Speaking on her experience, Martina said, “I didn’t start with nightlife, I started working in an eatery because I know how to cook and make snacks before moving to Abuja, and here (Abuja) I worked as a receptionist in a hotel, I worked as a housekeeper as well. I had to do this to survive because I am the type that doesn’t rely on men to survive.
“I have worked at Tiki Cultures owned by my current boss, and now working with her at Whiskey Mistress. She’s my first employer as a dancer.”
