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 for offering this wonderful scholarship to help and encourage young dancers to keep following their dreams.
