Dance 100, the one from Netflix upcoming dance challenge, will put seasoned performers to the test. They will have to appear on the program to demonstrate their ability, but they will also need to put together routines for large groups to demonstrate their ability. Rudy Garcia, who earned a black belt in karate at the age of 14, is one of the candidates who will appear on the Netflix program. He started karate when he was eight years old and liked it because it brought order and control to his life. Dance 100’s season debut on Netflix airs Friday, March 17 at 3:01 a.m. ET.
Rudy Garcia’s only desire was to dance.
Rudy Garcia, an American dancer and director born in Miami, Florida, is one of eight dancers who will compete in the upcoming Netflix dance challenge. Although he has always been involved in art and all things creativity, he stated in an interview with Voyage MIA that he never imagined working in the artistic industry when he was younger. In the conversation, he stated that his father enrolled him in karate at the age of eight and that he already had a black belt at the age of fourteen. He added that the framework and the discipline it provided prepared him for dance.
When asked when he started performing, he said:
“In 2009, my aunt, Susie Garcia, had started her own dance school. I was ready to take the plunge and sign up for a dance class. “From the moment I stepped into the studio, I knew dance would be a part of my life for the rest of my life.”
The Dance 100 contestant stated that it felt “natural” to him and that he worked diligently because he knew he wanted to be the best. Rudy attended New World School of the Arts but was rejected when he first auditioned for the school. He just wanted to dance, but after high school he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do. After some thought, he chose to enlist in the New World. However, he failed to impress the teacher during his academy tryout as he arrived in a sweat and was unaware that tights were required for the audition.
However, three months later, the Dance 100 ensemble member returned and was approved. He received a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from the institution in 2017. When asked about his undergraduate experience, he said:
“Those four years were the hardest of my life because I was in college, teaching and training at my aunt’s ballet school, and performing professionally. During that time I had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s biggest Latin acts, including Maluma, J Blavin, Daddy Yankee, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony and others.”
A performer for 13 years, he has studied in a variety of genres, but he excels in and teaches Jazz, Funk, and Contemporary. Rudy joins the Netflix dance series on Friday, March 17.
