Contortion Dancer Deniel Sarmiento’s performance on Asia’s Got Talent is turning heads. Deniel might only be 17-years-old but his dance techniques are well beyond his years. He blew away all three of the judges. Deniel’s performance incorporated modern dance elements as well as contortion moves.
At one point, you see ballet-inspired moves as well as touches of lyrical techniques. The way he blended those very distinct dance styles together throughout his performance was mind-blowing. His unique choreography was what got the judges heads turning, and then when he shocked them with some crazy contortion poses, they fell even more in love with him.
Very few people are able to become contortionists. It’s extremely hard on the body and takes hours and hours of practice. In this case, Deniel’s practicing definitely paid off. All three of the judges’ reactions were amazing. With every impressive move came an expression of complete shock on Judge Anggun’s face.
Throughout the performance, you could hear Judge Jay excitedly saying “Wow!”. Judge David didn’t say much, but his facial expressions spoke for themselves. During the entire performance, David’s eyes lit up in complete wonder at the complexity of the routine. There’s no doubt Deniel has a huge dance career ahead of him. Way to go!
