Dialed In 132: Ding dong, the Kin is dead Video
rian has been playing SWG since shortly after launch.. and he never planned on becoming a dancer. "Started as a Rifleman actually," he said, "I actually tried almost every profession. Went back to dancer about 7 times though. I always loved RPing and dancer is great for that.. plus its always funny to see a male dancer". According to reports, when 'Men of Helios' was shown at Fan Fest, it received a standing ovation. Is he suprised at how popular the video is? "Well, unfortunately I couldnt get to the Fan Fest, but I was very very suprised on the result. The original video was only made for fun, to show my guild that male dancers serve a purpose in SWG." He's also requested that if anyone made a video of his video being shown... send him an email at email@example.com! Balgosa doesn't work alone.. his (real life!) twin brother, Garritt, helps out as well. "He helps in all the videos and has a good say in the song picking. Belief is also big into the choreography," he added. You can visit his website, Windspire Entertainment, to see more!
