Amadeus Hernandez Profile Picture

Why I Dance

I dance because I know deep down that I have always been a dancer at heart.

My Secret Talent

I don’t really have one but I guess it would have to be that I’m a good at video games.

Who I Admire

I definitely admire Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. He reminds me that even at your lowest point you can keep going, or as he says, “ I can do that all day”.
