A Nigerian dancer who went viral after a video of him dancing in the rain has been offered a spot at an NYC ballet company.
Back in June, Leap of Dance Academy, located in Lagos, posted a video of their 11-year-old student Anthony Mmesoma Madu.
In the 43-second clip, Anthony kills it while dancing in the rain without ballet shoes. He moves around with such grace and perfectly lands each move.
The video garnered millions of views and received a shout-out from Viola Davis. She reposted the video on Twitter writing, “Reminds me of the beauty of my people. We create, soar, can imagine, have unleashed passion, and love....despite the brutal obstacles that have been put in front of us! Our people can fly!!! ❤”
