I am Diego Garcia Rendon, 14-year-old Mexican boy living in Australia. I’ve been training in dance since I was nine and it’s completely changed my life.
In 2014 and 2015 I was honoured to represent Mexico in International Festival of Dance in Colombia and World Championship of Hip Hop in USA. I began training with The Jukebox, the world champions of Hip Hop in 2018, and appeared on TV shows, short films, and commercials.
I moved to Australia in 2017. I was accepted at one of the most prestigious performing arts schools in the country, Patrick Studios Australia, directed by Todd Patrick. In addition to hip hop, I study ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap, singing, acting, musical theatre and acrobatics, alongside friends who share my dream.
This year has been the best yet. I appeared in the promotional video for Victorian Dance Festival, on the TV programs Ready Set Dance on Nick Jr and The Floor is Yours on ABC, was interviewed for a feature on SBS in Spanish, and was selected for The Dream Creative 2020, one of the most prestigious dance companies in Australia and New Zealand, directed by Marko Panzic.
I have faced challenges, from bullying, to moving overseas and learning a new language, to studying new dance techniques. I’m thrilled to be involved with the Australian dance community. I hope to be successful performing in musicals, TV shows, and movies.
