Gianmarco Rossato “Johnny”
Hello I’m Johnny, born in 1999 in the medieval city of Mantova, How I got involved in the cworld of the Country? My cousin pulled me inside, who danced for two years, and so it was, that in March 2012, I also moved my first steps.
I started soon with Catalan Style, and thanks to a strong memory, and at the young age, I reached quickly my classmates who were dancing already for some time, till to became, in October 2015, their teacher, founding the “Dorado Ranch Country Dance” team.
But stepping back in March of 2013, when I wrote my first choreography, STAY UP, thanks to which I and my team won the 2nd place of Tacchino Hat Dance Trophey competiotion of that year.
And from there, I get into the choreography world, write them is like painting a picture, you have a blank canvas (music), and every color drop (a step) build what will be the final work (the dance), which can be a masterpiece, or a sleaze, that you have to crumple and do it from the beginning.
It is a constant adventure, be a Choreographer bring me a lot of fun, and sometimes even gave me some satisfaction, as a 2nd place at the Belt Festival 2014, 2 place in Voghera Country Festival 2014 and 2015, a 2nd at Muntanya Catalan Festival 2016 … and a few others.
But the real success is the feeling that live on the track, with your teammates: the smiles, the tears, the screams of joy. And that’s what I try to always carry forward, not only in the races, but in my school, in lessons, in the evenings. Always! Thank you
