When Gustavo (Gus) Garcia posted a video from his mission on his way home from a US Army assignment, he had no idea it would go viral. Yet the talented dancer, now married for five years with three kids, found himself plastered across the internet for a simple act of missionary work he did years ago.
Growing up in St. George, Garcia first fell in love with dancing at a New Years street event. He was determined to one day beat a street dancer in a dance-off. “I am a self-learner and would dance everywhere while living in St. George. I spend thousands of hours in front of my parents’ big master bathroom mirror.” Garcia recalls. He also started a pop-and-lock and crip walk dance group at his high school.
