“It was very hard, but I kept thinking about the future," González said. "I want to be the best dancer I can, and I know that being in America will allow me that opportunity.”
González is just 23, but started training when he was 9, so he already has 14 years of experience. He's performed in "Swan Lake," "Sleeping Beauty" and "La Fille mal Gardée, among many others.
A statement from the company praised González for his "strong athleticism" and "purity of line and technique."
He'll start classes with the company immediately.
