peers and began demonstrating her artistic ability to choreograph. Through this establishment,
Ms. Roberson was able to showcase her choreography and “Krushal Kiddz" at many venues,
including a 106 & Park showing in New York and Showtime at the Apollo. Since then "Krushal
Kiddz" has charmed many stages; remaining an inspiration to young people. As adults,
Ms. Roberson and her peers decided to pass down the “Krushal Kiddz" legacy to a younger
generation of kids and established an adult group called “Krushal Inc”. Miss Roberson now owns
her own dance company, Krushal Dance Company, with an educational program and both
performance groups: the “Krushal Kiddz" performance group and the “Krushal Inc” adult group.
