Here at Audrey, we’ve always been quite the fan of Harry Shum Jr. and for good reason! Aside from his popular role as Mike Chang on Fox television show Glee, his powerful role as Chaz Young in White Frog and his swoon-worthy abs, Harry Shum Jr. is also widely known for his show-stopping dance skills.
This Chinese American entertainer began his dance career in high school then continued under several studios in San Francisco. He is known for blending a number of different dance styles including popping, tutting,waving, locking, breaking and also contemporary.
While we’ve been seeing quite a lot of Harry on the television screen, we don’t seem to know too much about his personal life.
Finally, Harry Shum Jr. lets us in. Creating a beautiful mess, Harry choreographed an interpretive dance to show how it’s like to be painfully shy. In this very personal and very beautiful dance, we get to know the actor and his personal struggle just a little bit more.
“If you, right now, are in a shell,” says the narrator, “you should know that you’re not alone — that there are many, many other people like you… it might even be necessary right now. It might keep you safe for a time. But after the danger is gone and after it’s exhausted its use, you’ll find a way out.”
Watch the dance below.
