VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- An enthusiastic crowd of young dancers greeted former So You Think You Can Dance contestant Nico Greetham Sunday.
The Springfield, Virginia native brought his moves and motivational message to Golden Slippers Dance Academy.
Greetham was part of day filled with dancing workshops.
"Whatever the specific song or specific movement is making you feel, I guess you are pulling from realistic experiences that you've lived, so that helps you express how you're feeling," he said.
"I tell young people not to listen to the people who say you can't do it, because I was told that so many times growing up, that dance is just like this fad, and you're not going to be able to live off dance and that's so not true," Greetham explained. "I am happy with my life, and I get to live each day of my life doing what I love, and that is so rare."
