Hispanic Performers to Look Out For

I would like to give a shoutout some phenomenal hispanic performers for Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month began on September 15 and ends on October 15. That's because it is the anniversary of the independence for Latin America countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala. These are some of the many Hispanic performers to look out for right now who are redefining the idea of #PerforminColor. 




Donovan Carillo is one of the top figure skaters in the world right now. He is a four time Mexican national champion. He is also the 2019 Philadelphia silver medalist. He began to learn skating at the age of 8.  He has earned the highest placement by a Mexican skater and qualifies for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Stefanny Morano is an artist, director, dancer and choreographer. She is Colombian. She is a four time Salsa World Champion.  She is on America's Got Talent right now with her partner Yeeremy Lugo. She is also a social media influencer. If you want to learn how to dance like her, she even has an online dance school called emdclass. If you match the same shade is Stefanny, you would be the True shade, linked here.



Karina Gonzalez is a Venezuelan ballet dancer for the Houston Ballet. She would wear the Lily shade, linked here She trained with the Gustavo Franklin ballet school in Caracua, Venezuela. She joined the Houston Ballet in 2010 and became a soloist in 2013. She is Houstons ballet first Hispanic principal.  A principal dancer is the highest rank of a dancer particularly in ballet. 



Javier Fernandez is a figure skater. He is a seven time European champion.  He is the first champion from Spain to medal at the Olympics.  Fernandez is the second man to break the 100 point program in the short program, the 200 point in the long program and the 300 point barrier in the final score. He received the Gold medal of the Royal Order of Sports Merit by the Spanish government in 2019.


Harlow Stanley is an Ice dancer. Her partner is Nikita Sosenoka.  Both of them have been skating since they were four. Nikita is Ukranian and Harley is Mexican. She just recently transitioned from freestyle dancing to ice dancing. They represent Mexico in International Skate Union events. They both attend Riverside High School in Landsdowne, Virginia.

All of these performers exemplify what #PerforminColor really means. You should check all of these talented people out.
