Scott Barnard went from taking classes in a small village in New York to a full scholarship to train with Gus Giordano in Chicago. After a year of training, he went to Las Vegas, where the tall dancers went, to audition for Jubilee.

We discuss the elementary school bullying that almost prevented his dance career, his fourteen years in Jubilee and all the adventures he experienced in  between. Listen in to hear about his path to principal and how his confidence grew over the years once he stepped into his true self and chose dancing over what others thought of him. Enjoy!
