    Have you performed in musical theater or in public functions as a dancer?
    Yes

    What would you like to see happen to you as a result of the show?
    Opportunity through exposure and growth. Traveling and teaching what I know and Iím going to learn as well as learning new things along the way. A successful, fun, hard working dance career.

    Where would you like to be in 10 years and what would you like to be doing?
    Iíd like to be able to live comfortably in 10 years, mentally and financially. I want to see myself with a degree in dance and a background education in American, world and dance history. So that after I have either started my own dance company or conventions and have taught and performed for as long as my body enables me. I can go and teach younger kids who will be in my position years from now. To give a child a chance when they donít have the means or the supportive person(s) in their life to help them along in achieving their goals.

    What has been your most memorable dance experience?
    How long it took and how far we all came to get to this point. The people as well. Itís such a spiritual feeling when you get a bunch of dancers together, thereís truly nothing like it. Weíre crazy, loud, and over the top at times but what artist isnít? Also at the same time even though we are all here to compete against one another, going after one goal against all odds, we find compassion, love, and dedication in each other. That has been and what I hope to continue to be the most memorable part of this dance experience.

    What have you learned so far in going through the audition process for this show?
    I have learned that when it comes to something serious as this its fun, exciting, and can lead to a great opportunity, but if you donít pay attention to the fast past real world of auditioning you will be lost in a second. Also you can be the most amazing technical and unique dancer in the bunch but if you donít read across your face the judges donít see anything. You have to have a personality that is warm, inviting, and in your face but lovable at the same time.

    What are your favorite dance moments from movies, TV and/or stage?
    Of course Mia Michaels Piece to ďCalling YOUĒ by Celine Dion. Hair Spray is a great movie, full of high energy dancing. Even though I havenít seen a lot of musicals, only "The Lion King," I can say that musicals have great theatrical dance moments.

    Which choreographers would you like to work with?
    All of them. Because you can never have too much to learn from.

    Don't recall seeing any of him in the audition episodes, but he looks like Angel from Rent.

    He's no Danny But he does remind me of Jared Cotter from American Idol, the host of "The Sauce".

    *perks up* he's kind of cute. Thought I'd be without the eye candy this season. Wonder if he can dance? I don't remember anything about him. Did we even see him?

    I just added his bio/questionnaire from the official site and WOW - he's very well spoken for an 18-year-old kid.

    I'm not remembering him from the auditions but he's darling. Very handsome.

    Now I feel like Nigel, ogling the young un's. *shame face and slinks off*

    I don't remember him either, another with no screen time. I really liked his answer to:

    Where would you like to be in 10 years and what would you like to be doing?

    Just comes off as a nice kid.

    He might be a nice kid, but I think he is in wayyyyy over his head. I do not get any sense of confidence or strength from him at all. I think he should've been held back for next year or more.
