Meet the Dancers: Simon & Lot

 

With only three weeks left until showtime, we have come to the final Meet the Dancers. Last but not least: Simon and Lot!

Simon was one of last year’s stars. A charismatic Brazilian Zouk dancer, he wowed us all with his newfound modern dance technique. His work ethic set an example for everyone. This year he regrettably didn’t have the time to go full throttle with Project Blank. However, when our beloved Jesús had to quit due to injuries, he stepped in for a piece, which requires two male dancers. We are grateful that he is able to join us on stage again!

Lot brightens up every rehearsal with her smiley demeanor. She was born to be on stage, and is a triple threat with her singing, dancing and acting talents! In addition to Project Blank, she is currently taking ballroom and Latin classes, and she has recently even been offered a role in a mime-inspired theater production! On stage with Project Blank, she shines the brightest in jazzy and expressive pieces. Off stage, she is part of the social media team. Needless to say, she is irreplaceable and incredibly valued here at Project Blank!
