Anthony Mmesoma Madu, the young ballet dancer whose video of him dancing in the rain went viral spoke for the first time.In an interview with the BBC, 11-year-old Anthony Madu said that many people think ballet is for women only, adding that when he dances, he wants people to see that a boy could also do the same thing.
Anthony’s teacher Daniel Ajala, founder of the Leap of Dance Academy, said the boy takes dancing seriously and is always aware of the times and very committed.
Anthony’s mother noted that the young man never told him that he was doing ballet. “He never told me, but I noticed him in him when he stretched his legs, his hands. I said to him, ‘But what is this nonsense?’ Whenever he dances, I feel happy, I enjoy watching him dance. “
She also advised parents to discover their children’s talents and provide them with the necessary support.
