Roland Martinez - October 2016 Viewers' Choice

I have been dancing since I was 4 1/2.  I am 9 1/2 now.  This is my third year dancing at Dancers Edge Competition studio in Kernersville, NC.  I am now studying jazz, lyrical/contemporary, acting, conditioning, and hip hop.  Hip Hop is my favorite style of dance.  I love that we have a lot of other guys on our dance team.  

I would like to thank Cathy Lee Hambright-Ward and Christy Hambright Carter, owners of Dancers Edge for giving me the opportunity to dance on the team.  I love working with Sam Jones, Mercedes Bolden, Kentrell Newton, Ashley Rogers, and all the other teachers.  They push me to try my hardest and do my best.  I love meeting new people and performing and learning at dance competitions and conventions.  I have a lot of fun with the team.  "SAY I WON'T" is my first ever solo. I chose the song because I love Lecrae and Andy Mineo.  Their music is cool and their message is great.  I don't know what I want to do when I grow up.  But, I definitely want to dance as part of it.

Thank you to Harlequin Floors and TheWorldDances.com for offering this wonderful scholarship to help and encourage young dancers to keep following their dreams.
