““I feel as though when I dance, I’m sharing who I am....

""I feel as though when I dance, I'm sharing who I am. It's not a facade. It's me." @jeroboamb has been having a breakout season with #AlvinAiley American Dance Theater. But the 25-year-old dancer's life has not been a fairy tale. @jeroboamb grew up in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, with his parents and 6 siblings. He was tormented for liking to dance and was once so brutally attacked by a group of boys that people jumped out of their car to help him. At 14, he temporarily quit dancing when his family moved into a homeless shelter in the Bronx. Today, it's hard to imagine that the steely performer had to audition for the Ailey company 5 times before landing a spot. #regram from @migeophoto, who photographed @jeroboamb at the #AlvinAiley Studios in Manhattan."
