In this episode of DanceSpeak, So You Think You Can Dance alum, Ade Chike Torbert, shares the stories before, in between, and behind the string of success he has experienced over the years. Adechike begins painting a powerful picture of the difficult early lessons that molded his unstoppable work ethic, and all of the times he persevered through unimaginable circumstances. The interview I had with Adechike was so epic that we decided to create two episodes from this. In part 1 you will learn what prepared the dancer for reality television life, the seed that was planted for his run with FELA! the musical, and a retrospective on a career that started before Adechike had reached the age of 10. Get ready to be inspired.
