There is a certain criterion when you describe a dancer.
He/she has to be lean, fit and hold the personality of a model. It seems to be a stereotype about how a dancer should look like. Well, dancing is something that can actually help you achieve the desired body shape. Dancing is an alternative to daily exercising but with a pinch of fun.
There are so many people who don’t look like dancers but are actually pretty good with the moves. And John Lindo comes in that category. For that starters, you will not believe for a second how good a dancer he is. This is because the way he looks, his body figure doesn’t relate him as a dancer. For me, he is a perfect example of why you should never judge a book by its cover. And in this case, a dancer by his body!
Dancing can help you stay in shape but it is not necessary. We have seen so many people who are not in shape but are great dancers. Dancing doesn’t require training, if you are confident about doing certain moves then you will automatically look good, doesn’t matter what your body shape is.
John has a mastery in country-western style dancing form as he was doing it for some time. But he learned that he also has a thing for West Coast Swing Circuit. That lead him to participate in different dancing competitions and all of them resulting in him winning the competitions.
From the Phoenix Champion of Champions, US Open and even the Grand Nationals, he won all of them with his sweet dance moves. He has eventually shut down the mouths of all the stereotypes who describes how a dancer should look like. It doesn’t matter whether you are small or big, if you have a dream then you should work on achieving it.
The society will act as the hurdle for every step you take and you have to learn how to run past them. To get a gist of what competitive dancing looks like, you should definitely check the video of John showing off his cool dance moves. Dancing is all about finding a rhythm, and you will be shocked to see how John has managed to move his body along with the tunes.
In the video, he is paired with Deborah Szekely who is also an amazing dancer. The dancing duo ended up on a winning note, defeating all the fellow competitors. At the end of the day, the whole ballroom was filled with the claps and whistles of the audience. Everybody loved John and Deborah’s performance, it was pretty awesome.
The judges were amazed to see how John was able to quickly move his feet and body despite being overweight. He is truly an inspiration, said one of the judges. If you want to dance to perfection, then you have to work on your hand-eye coordination along with making your body move with the tune and John aced it, he added.
He was dancing like a professional ballroom dancer, the way he spins Deborah, it was so fast and a treat to watch.
