Feeling the music: Dancing while deaf
Antoine Hunter says deaf people love music. Ever since he was young and saw "The Nutcracker" at the Oakland Ballet in California, he knew he wanted to be a dancer. Antoine can feel the vibrations when he moves and watches others to find the rhythm. He also uses his "deaf instincts" as he puts it. He says dancing saved his life because people couldn't understand him. After his first solo dance performance in High School, he learned dance was the best way to communicate with people. His message is simple. Don't let anything hold you back, don't be afraid to make mistakes, and love yourself.
