This is Jesús: a powerful and positive Latin dancer. His sensual Bachata audition captivated us from the moment he started moving. Later, he stole our hearts once again when he admitted that he sometimes practiced pieces of choreography in his office (and once got ‘caught’ by a colleague in the middle of a capoeira-like pose).
This hard-working dancer is one of the sunniest personalities in the bunch, and a calming and stable presence at our rehearsals. Unfortunately, his body has not been a stable presence for Jesús. Due to several injuries, he recently had to stop with rehearsals, which could not make us sadder.
He will, however, remain a part of the Project Blank family, so of course he deserves a spotlight. This week’s Meet the Dancers is a tribute to Jesús. We will miss him!
