Created his own concentration in business/entrepreneurship
Montelongo’s affinity for creation led him to choreograph for an experimental theater play titled Tongues/Savage Love, then to become one of the founding members of the SC Choreographic Collective. These interests culminated as he produced, wrote, choreographed and danced in his own senior project called ROOTED. On his bucket list is opening a dance school and company in his home country, Mexico, to increase access to the art form, as well as to facilitate and program original multimedia productions in his own theater. Montelongo is currently dancing with Alonzo King LINES Ballet.
“I strive to paint smiles and to soften hearts through multimedia spectacles that explore and redefine the purpose of spectacle,” he said.
