Man auditions to be a Miami Heat dancer

August 11, 2015

200+ participants showed up at this year’s Miami Heat dancer auditions in Florida — including one male competitor, Keith Wilson.


The 28-year-old is a choreographer and dance teacher at Exclusive Vibes Contemporary Dance Theatre… and first auditioned for the award-winning dance team back in 2012. Though the Miami Heat has never had a male dancer, men are technically still allowed to audition.

Wilson advanced to the four-day bootcamp, but he was ultimately not chosen to move forward.

“Dance and that’s it. It has no gender, no sexuality. It’s just dance, and it’s art,” Wilson told Local 10 News. “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.’”
