It was amazing to watch Chris Fonseca, a 28years old Deaf Dancer on BBC’s Greatest Dancer Show last Saturday evening. Chris did his amazing dance and inspired the judges and audiences, showing that he can dance, despite being deaf since 23months old, by feeling the beat and vibrations.
From everyone at Harrow & Brent United Deaf Club, we wish him all the best with the next round, he is a true inspiration for many of us!
Here is the press release from MSN:
Unique dancer Chris Fonseca, deaf performs street to God’s Plan by Drake.
Dance talent show where dancers of any age and dance style compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing. Leading the charge to discover the greatest dancer are three superstar dance captains – platinum-selling singer Cheryl Tweedy, Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.
The series is hosted by singer and presenter Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, member of multi-award-winning dance troupe Diversity. The audience hold the power – if they are impressed by the audition, they can vote to open the mirror, and if 75 per cent of the audience vote yes then the mirror will open and the dancer will make it through to the next stage of the competition, the callbacks.
Get ready to see talent from across the world of dance, from ballet to jazz, street to ballroom, contemporary to disco as the dancers give the performances of their lives in the hope of opening the mirror
