Île-Perrot, Que. teen hopes to be crowned best dancer at prestigious Orlando competition

An Île-Perrot -Perrot teen is ready to take the leap into being crowned best dancer at a prestigious North American dance competition this summer, something he has been dreaming of competing in for years.

Alessandro Nicolosi, 14, has a passion for dancing and one day hopes to make a career of it. In July, he’ll be competing for title of best dancer at The Dance Awards in Orlando.

“I found out about this last year and I was like, ‘next year I’m going to go, I’m going to do this I can do this,’” said Alessandro Nicolosi.

Last April, Nicolosi was sidelined due to a partial torn hamstring that kept him out of competition season. Luckily, however, he was able to bounce back.

“It was just too slowly starting to get up to where you are before and to work harder to get to where you were before,” Nicolosi said.

With the injury behind him, Nicolosi’s main focus is on The Dance Awards. He won a competition at Nuvo in Toronto earning his bid to perform in July.

“I feel confident in myself that I can do well,” Nicolosi told Global News.

“Even if that doesn’t happen, then next year that will be my goal and hopefully one day I will achieve it.”

Christine Langston, co-owner of Studio de danse Imperium in Dorval., has known Nicolosi for four years. She says his attitude and determination have never wavered.

“In workshops he would be right in front of the class and go full out all the time,” she said.

“Focus, concentrated; I knew he was going to go somewhere with this.”
