Fanny Fact: Favorite quote: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel
I bet you’re wondering, “Who’s this random Chinese guy? He wasn’t in Fanny Pak on Season 2 of ABDC.” Well… I’m Preston, a new addition to the Pak for ABDC’s Season 7! I was born and raised in the gay little city of fog, San Francisco. Despite, the depressing weather, I grew up to become a bright glittering star. It made sense since I loooved tap dancing and singing show tunes. I have to admit, I caught the acting bug at age 10, where I nabbed a role in the musical Oliver. I think I was only picked because I was cute and pudgy and no one expected me to do such a mean cartwheel. When a fat kid does a cartwheel, he doesn’t go unnoticed!
I fell in love with musical theater and began my training. I got a vocal coach, studied acting and enrolled in tap classes; the perfect formula for Musical theater success! After a 3-year stint in a musical theater program for misfit/gay teenagers, I coincidentally decided to get serious with dance. I transferred to School of the Arts High School where I chose dance as my discipline. It was the best decision of my life, because, there, I fell in love with dance and I began the rest of my life.
After graduating, I moved to Los Angeles and began my career dancing for the biggest names in the world. I’ve worked with Britney, Christina, Janet, JLo, John Legend, Black Eyed Peas, the Pussycat Dolls, and the list goes on. From an overweight Chinese boy with a bowl cut, to a backup dancer for popstars, to a member of one of the world’s most COLORFUL dance crews, I am proof that any outcast with desires of stardom can live their dreams and join the Pak!
