it was a night when all of the stars were aligned, and the brightest one in the sky cast its luster upon a 26-year-old from San
Jose, Calif. If not for that one evening of brilliance, the world might never have fallen in love with Rudy Galindo.
That wild night...in 1996...when he captured the U.S. men’s title.
His flawless performance as a modern jazz dancer portraying the evil Baron Von Rothbart from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” is arguably one of the most exciting moments in skating history.
That night changed his life.
