Boris Perez, a dancer and actor from Puerto Vallarta, will participate in the upcoming 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games opening ceremony, which will take place on February 12th. These Olympic Games, sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee, take place every four years and include winter sports such as skiing, speed skating, and artistic skating, among others.
Participating in one of the most important and symbolic moments of the opening, Boris Adán Pérez Soltero learned about the auditions throughout the newspaper, and after three trials was selected to be part of the exclusive group of performers. Boris was born on July 25th, 1985. He decided to moved to Canada two years ago in search of new goals and career challenges.
His artistic pursuits began in a local theater group headed by Arturo Ortega. He also belonged to Angel Stopier ballet which presently performs in local hotels. He also took several workshops in modern dance, tap and jazz.
After his participation in the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, he will continue his preparation as a dancer, hoping to participate in the Canadian version of the television program "So You Think You Can Dance."
