557. "My teachers would get so mad because they'd think I was raising my hand and I'd be like 'No, I'm dancing!'" When Jaycee Homsher was in middle school he tried dancing, but was booed off the floor and decided to quit. After seeing the @jabbawockeez on "America's Best Dance Crew" though, he was determined to get back into it. He started with tutting, a style involving mainly finger and hand movements, because he could do it in class; hence why his teachers thought he was raising his hand. He continued to develop his skills when he joined the crew, the Star City Rebels, and took on the name "Joke Star" - an individual, who despite being criticized or made fun of, sticks to their goals and eventually shines. He's now pursuing a degree in business and hopes to use his experience to open a studio where he can one day facilitate the development of future Joke Stars! Awesome hanging with you, @jokestar! #10kfriends #philly #temple #dance #jabbawockeez #abdc #jokestar #hiphop #riskmanagement #meetingpeople
How we met: Jaycee first heard about my project through a friend last year. He recently saw someone he knew on it and DM'ed me to meet!
