A boy and his dream

Recommended Posts

This boy and his dream of becoming a professional dancer (Univisión, "Primer Impacto", 24 July 2020: https://www.univision.com/shows/primer-impacto/necesita-ayuda-para-cumplir-su-sueno-ser-un-bailarin-profesional-de-ballet)  reminds me of some of the best stories I have read here. (Caveat: I make no inference about the boy's sexuality, though some of his bullying schoolmates seem quite willing to make that jump.)

(Summary for non-Spanish speakers: 13-year-old boy from a poor rural part of the Dominican Republic creates his own ballet space in an abandoned house and—with the help of  YouTube and other Internet resources—learns and practices his art. Univisión is hoping some of its viewers will assist, but that's not why I'm posting this here. Watching him move is a pleasure.)
