Extraordinary Talent of the Week: Alex Silvis

Sometimes you just have to follow your heart – that’s the lesson NewsChannel 9’s Extraordinary Talent of the Week learned early on.

Silvis – a senior at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School – always knew he wanted to dance.

But as a little boy growing up in Vernon, the girls danced and the boys played sports.

“It took a while, but I ended up doing what felt right for me. I danced all the time, I danced under my desk at school, I tumbled through the hallways at school,” Silvis said.

Alex didn't let the bullies come between him and his dream, however. 

He started lessons when he was seven and has been dancing ever since.

“Performing out on stage is really my favorite part of dancing and it’s a time when I can really express myself and be me,” he said.
