Eddieomar Gonzalez - August 2016 Judges' Choice

I have been dancing for almost ten years now.

I'm currently studying Ballet and Modern technique at SUNY Purchase. I also enjoy doing contemporary, hip hop and ballroom.

I'm so thankful for my teachers Jan Hanniford, Maria Konrad, Michele Zehner, Jerry Opdenaker, and Christopher Huggins.

The solo I did was choreographed for college auditions and YoungArts. Working with Christopher Huggins was a blast! We have worked together for several years. With the knowledge that he had from our past experiences together he was able to create a solo that showcased me very well!

YoungArts was a great experience! I was fortune enough to be able to be surrounded by like minded artists which inspired me and reminded why I fell in love with the art of dance in the first place. I believe that competitions allows you to have more opportunities to perform and gain the stage experience that dancers need.

My future plans are to receive my BFA in dance from SUNY Purchase and hopefully be able to join a company. What I believe I want from dance could possibly change due to the influences and styles that I will be exposed to throughout my years at Purchase. 

Again thank you so much for this and have a wonderful day!!
