In the competitive world of professional cheerleading auditions, bringing your A-game is an absolute must. Also a must? Making sure that you stand out among all of the other auditionees. Dancer Keyth Wylson certainly found a way to do both, when he recently auditioned for a spot on the Miami Heat dance team.
Challenging the notion that professional cheerleading is an all-female sport, Wylson explained to reporters at Local News10 Florida that dance "has no gender, no sexuality. It's just dance, and it's art." Wylson, who is a dance teacher, choreographer, and executive director of Exclusive Vibes Contemporary Dance Theatre in Miami, certainly brought the artistry and enthusiasm to his audition, which is nothing short of absolutely F-I-E-R-C-E.
Though Wylson did not make the final cut of auditions this year, he intends to continue auditioning until he makes it. (He first auditioned in 2012.) His advice for anyone following a dream? “Never let anyone tell you you can’t do something because of this or that, never let anyone tell you you’re not good enough, or you’re not small enough or you’re not fit enough; it should always be, ‘go for it.'"

If that didn't pump you up, you may want to seek medical attention.
