‘Nigerian Boy, 11, Earns Scholarship Offers After Video of Him Dancing in the Rain Goes Viral’

I always say passion doesn't wait for a perfect moment. All moments create a time for your passion. If you have the talent, skill, and dedication, how you define success will find you some day. 

  I was scrolling the internet and found this beautiful story of Madu, that proved my message so beautifully

‘Nigerian Boy, 11, Earns Scholarship Offers After Video of Him Dancing in the Rain Goes Viral’

Nigerian Boy Dancing in the rain goes viral

The viral video caught the attention of many, including Cynthia Harvey, the artistic director of the ABT Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of Dance. One of the most prestigious schools in New York City In the United States. 


"A friend who lives in the UK sent me the video," Harvey told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Within a day, I was trying to find him."

Madu is part of the Leap of Dance Academy, one of the very few ballets in Nigeria which only has 12 children.

Behind those fanciful in class beauty and costumes are lots and lots of backstage hard work. With very little or no resources our kids are training to be the best they can. This is not to bring down anyone but to show their high level of dedication and committments to our program. Who wouldn't be proud of them? What teacher wouldn't pray for students who shows/comes to class with so much desire to learn? Kids who are ready to dance with or without conditions. Imagine what more we could achieve if we have more?
DMs for more information.

When Madu found out his video had gone viral the attention made the young dancer became "very, very happy."  


 According the the Nigerian ballet school, he has yet to officially accept any scholarship offers, though ABT is working on getting him internet access so that he can use a laptop donated by supporters, the Enquirer reported.

“A child who shows this much dedication, you just have to help,” Harvey told the outlet. “If there is anything the world has taught us, it’s that we have to inspire all sorts of people and that we all have a lot to learn from one another. Providing opportunities for Daniel and Anthony is the right thing to do.”
