JOHNATHAN CALTON

My name is Johnathan Calton, I am from Shreveport, LA, and one of the most unique things about me is I’m an identical twin. I have been dancing and involved in other arts for over 20 years.  My mother danced professionally, so my twin and I were very privileged to attend rehearsals with her, and also help out on set. I remember how it felt to sit in the audience and watch while she performed a ballet piece or an African dance routine. I couldn’t contain myself so I began to practice and learn dance in the comfort of my own home because I was shy and remember not wanting anyone to think of me different. I learned to dance by watching music videos, and mimicking people like Michael Jackson. I learned to moon walk in my kitchen while listening to Thriller and washing dishes. I later ventured into acting where I was a main character in a play about “The History of Music.”  Obviously, I had to perform a few dances in this play while acting, lip singing, and quoting poetry.
