Dance Signature Move:
Nathan tried playing several different sports as a kid, but says he was never very good at any of them. Inspired by his older brother, a hip-hop and contemporary dancer, he decided to start taking classes when he was 10. He credits his parents for his success: “In middle school, kids started making fun of me, so in 7th grade, my parents moved me to Orange County High School of the Arts. I appreciate my parents so much. They paid so much money to send me there [despite] having problems with money … I’m very emotional right now … There have been so many ups and downs in my life and they’ve always supported me. I just want to make them proud.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
