Artist Spotlight: Francesco Fernando
May 5, 2010
Sophomore Francesco Fernando is one of the many B-boys that dances the halls at WHS. He’s been seriously dancing for about two and a half years.
“I just tried it out one day and I found that I liked it.” Fernando said.
He used to take classes at the Steps Styles and Spotlights dance studio for one year. His teacher was B-boy Kool Raul (RJ) from Supreme Soul on “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Now Fernando doesn’t dance in a group any more.
He also competes in choreography at the dance studio.
“The thing I like most about it is that it builds character. You also make new friends. The dance itself is very unique and challenging, from matching your moves to the music and the ability to do the moves at all.” Fernando said.
For him, the hardest part about dancing is perfecting the moves.
He plans on continuing dancing after high school but isn’t sure about becoming a professional dancer.
“Maybe I’d like to join a crew or start one of my own.” Fernando said.
