Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful dancer from our fine city of Birmingham. Let me introduce you to Victor. I originally met him via my brother. I did not know he was talented dancer until I started to follow him on Instagram and Facebook. Here is one interesting fact about him: he is self taught dancer. Let me say, that is truly amazing. He has been dancing since 2004, but decided to take a break from dancing from five years due to life ailments. In the year of 2014, he decided to follow his dreams and dance again. He is self taught in contemporary and jazz. In his own words, “DANCE IS MY LIFE AND WITHOUT IT, I AM INCOMPLETE.”
Now that’s true determination at it finest. Remember, a dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hand work. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for this dancer.
