Life is about daring to dream, I’m in love with this city and ready to fall in love with the music and dance to come.” h/t hellogiggles

Bindi usually spends her time conquering the great outdoors, but she admits, “This is completely different to anything I have ever done in my life,” Bindi told Good Morning America. “I am used to wrangling crocodiles.”
