New Jersey boy under pressure
Waiting for results
The pressure is on for a young New Jeresy boy.
Crowley took second place in both the 2002 and 2007 Worlds. However, Crowley hopes to become king of his competition later today when he goes for first place.
Although he was very happy with his solo hard shoe, Crowley told Irish Central that it could go either way.
"You just never know what way the judges are going to vote," he said.
Crowley, who is in his final few months in high school, said he sees a future in his passion.
"I really want to dance full time in a show," he said.
Crowley is so serious about dancing in a show that he has sent an audition video to the producers of "Rhythm of the Dance".
"Rhythm of the Dance: is by far one of the best shows out there at the moment," says Crowley.
"The show travels all over the world and I'd love to be part of that."
However Crowley, who plans to continue competing, said if he doesn't succeed in landing a job with a show he will study bio-mechanical engineering.
"Yes," he laughs, "they are definitely very different careers."
However, after learning that Lord of the Dance hero, Flatley would be appearing at the competitions later this evening, Crowley said he would love to meet him personally.
