Blessing Fire: When dance has no limit
June 21, 2017
From the day he was born, Blessing Fire has been told he could never walk nor stand and would have to use a wheelchair for the rest of his life. But nobody said anything about breakdancing!
Seeing his brother practicing gymnastics inspired him and gave him the will to go beyond his limits. Against his parents‘ consent he would sneak out at night and train to become a professional dancer.
Even though he can only walk short distances and is kept awake at night because of his sore legs, Beat Boy Crystals – his stage name- overcomes his disability every day to follow his dreams. Thanks to his perseverance and strong motivation, he succeeded in becoming one of the best dancer in the country.
Blessing Fire is now an accomplished dancer and became a dedicated teacher.. He led his students to win several local and regional awards even though none of them have a disability.
Not only is he a famous break dancer and teacher but also the jury of a local dance competition, showing that disability and skill is an absolute match!
