Dance Signature Move:

Jonathan’s mom and dad started crying when they found out he’d made the Top 20: “I’m a street dancer. I was raised in Miami and I used to bring cardboard home and my mom used to throw it away because it was garbage in the house. So I wasn’t really supported in that way. But for my parents to now see me [do well as a dancer] and love what I do and say, ‘Wow, you’re actually good!; it’s fun.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it

From Fox Dance Profile:

I came from Miami to become someone that can inspire all. I love acting, dancing, making music, artistry of all sorts. Movement is my life. Peace and love, unity, certainty, and compassion is how I try to live life. Do what you love, love what you do. 🙂
