Back in June, I shared a short clip of 11-year-old Anthony Mmesoma Madu (above) practicing ballet on a muddy street in his town of Lagos, Nigeria.

After his dance in the rain went viral, Madu is now training with the American Ballet Theatre online and has been offered a scholarship to study with the acclaimed ballet company in the U.S. next year.
