Jesús Solorio was one of the top 20 finalists on the third season of the Fox network’s reality television show So You Think You Can Dance. Nicknamed “Chuy,” he began dancing when he was ten years old, and he trained at a Russian school for eight years. Jesus classifies his techniques and dance style as a mix of different genres, such as hip-hop, tap, salsa, ballet, lyrical, and jazz. Aside from dancing, he also has passion for cooking in his spare time.
His favorite professional dancer is Bubba Carr, though no one else in his family dances professionally. Jesus has performed publicly onstage in the musical production The Music Man, and he cites his most memorable dance experience as being able to perform on a cruise ship and visiting Europe. He hopes to be hired as an actor, dancer and performer following his stint on So You Think You Can Dance, and he plans to act in movies and create shows for hotels within the next ten years. He was eliminated from the show on June 28, 2007 along with fellow contestant Jessica Peralta.BuddyTV exclusive interview with Jesus Solario
