Some words from the interview with Antoine Hunter.

Is there an early memory you’d like to share about when you first discovered your passion for dancing?

The first time that I realized dance was the way to communicate with people, I was in high school. And I took dance class. One day my teacher said, "Hey, you all have to work together with a project and create a dance." Nobody wanted to dance with me. No one wanted to work with me. I told my teacher and she said, "Well, why don't you go ahead and create a solo?"

So, I got the music: Whitney Houston, "I Will Always Love You." I got on stage and the music was playing. She was singing. I was just rocking side to side, feeling cold and alone. I was moving all over the room. When the instrumental break hit, it felt like lightning was hitting my body. The fire, the water, the wind. Every element that's alive was shooting through my body. I didn't know what I was doing but I remember when the music stopped. I was catching my breath. All the students watching me, they didn't say anything but then everyone started applauding. My teacher asked everyone what I felt. They said it felt like he was cold and alone. I was like, "That's right!" I knew from then on, dance was the way to communicate.

From there on, I fell in love. I wanted to do Russian dance, Indian dance, hip-hop, everything. I wasn't thinking about my career; I was just thinking it was a way to express myself. Like each dance was like a different language I wanted to learn.
