Desmond Richardson Photos, Biography, Video

Desmond RichardsonDesmond Richardson is a multi-talented artist who has mastered a wide range of dance forms such as classical, modern, and contemporary. He is considered by the New York Times as “one of the great modern dancers of his time”.

I like his dance moves... if he joins the So You Think You Can Dance TV dance contest, I think he will win. He is competitive enough to compete Tyce Diorio, Chelsie Hightower, Kherington, or even Milly Vanilly.
