I Want To Have It All Too!
Tabitha & Napoleon D’uomo
Choreographers and husband-and-wife team Tabitha and Napoleon D’uomo are best known for their involvement in the dance competition show So You Think You Can Dance.
Tabitha and Napoleon D’uomo have developed a new form of hip-hop dance, which judge Adam Shankman would later call “lyrical hip-hop”.
Tabitha was born Tabitha Cortopassi on September 11, 1973 in Galloway Township, New Jersey. The Italian-American studies jazz, ballet and tap during her younger years; she also studied hip-hop by observing music videos. Napoleon, born in Apple Valley, California in 1968, learned hip-hop by frequenting the popping scene in Los Angeles. His family later moved to Las Vegas.
Tabitha and Napoleon met as students of University of Nevada–Las Vegas: she majored in communication, while he majored in molecular biology. There, both pursued their love of dance, with Napoleon even earning a scholarship as part of the university’s dance group. They began their dance partnership in 1996, right after their graduation, as part of LV-based group Culture Shock; they would marry two years later, on April 19, 1998, and have been inseparable since.
The couple became prominent in the dance scene when they moved to Los Angeles, where they began choreographing for numerous artists, television shows, movies, and dance teams for the NBA and NFL. The “Dynamic D’uomos”, as they were known, became more popular when they joined America’s Best Dance Crew, where they acted as supervising choreographers. In 2008, they joined as guest judges and choreographers for So You Think You Can Dance. There, they became known for “lyrical hip-hop”, a type of hip-hop dance that is more soulful and tells a story more prominently.
The couple is also involved in directing tours and live events, producing workout DVDs, and Nappytabs, their line of hip-hop dance apparel.

Having it all is not about striving for perfection, or about living our lives according to someone else’s standards or expectations (we’ve done that for far too long).
It’s not about working ourselves to a state of exhaustion, spreading ourselves too thin, or trading inner peace and contentment for outer trinkets of success.
Been there. Done that too.
Having it all simply means having access to all of yourself, in any moment you choose it, and in every aspect of life that is important to you.
Learn exactly how you can “Have it All Too”
Right at this moment, no matter how you are feeling, no matter how in debt you might be, no matter how old you are or how much you weigh, and no matter what the condition of your relationships might be, you have the power to re-create yourself and your life exactly the way you desire it to be – and quite frankly, the way you deserve it to be.
Regardless of how big a gap exists between what you want and what you currently have, within you is the ability to effortlessly and joyfully bridge that gap in virtually every aspect of your life.
You can have it all, how you define it, how you want it. You do have the power to create it.
