RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Thel Moore III has found a home on stage.

“For the most part, I tend to go to the gym and work out for 30 minutes to an hour. I come back, I go to the ballet and do a very short workout to warm my body back up, do lots of stretching to get my body prepared for our ballet class,” Moore said.

Moore’s dancing career started at the age of 13.

I decided that I wanted to focus on dance a little bit more and I took my first ballet class and fell in love with ballet and have been dancing ever since.”
