14-year-old Julian was born with a special gift. Most people dream of being able to dance like he can.
But kids can be cruel, especially when they’re intimidated by or jealous of someone’s confidence in the face of bullying. The more his classmates call him names, threaten him, and try to turn him off from his passion, the more Julian dances.
Though he’s never taken a dance class or lesson, watching Julian dance is like watching Michael Jackson himself. As soon as he’s finished with his homework after school, he rolls up the rugs, puts on the music, and dances throughout the house. Luckily, his parents are incredibly supportive. They refuse to stop their son from doing the one thing that makes him truly happy.
Julian even dances in public places, on the streets, and inside skating rinks where his classmates socialize. He responds to those who ridicule by saying, “They call me stupid, I don’t care. I know who I am, I know what I am.”
Now, other students who are drawn to the music — and to Julian’s courage — have been showing up to dance with him. As this group of inspirational kids grows, they plan on dancing for other kids as advocates against bullying.
