Dance Lessons From Michael

Produced by

Joanne Spencer was a budding dancer when she first heard the music of Michael Jackson. She became obsessed with watching his videos and concerts on TV and soon became a master Michael Jackson mimic. Her exposure to his new dance moves prompted her to take her dancing to the next level. Joanne went on to become a successful professional dancer.

But it wasn't until Joanne stood her kitchen listening to the first news about Jackson's death that she realized the profound effect that the King of Pop had on her life. Joanne talks to Dick Gordon about finding herself through the music of Michael Jackson, and how she's now sharing that music with her kids.
