Here's What You Need to Know About Dancer JT Church
15-year-old JT Church has quite an impressive resume as a dancer.
The competitive dancer has been dancing since he was 5, and it shows in his skills. When he was just 10, he came in second place on So You Think You Can Dance (coming in ahead of Tate Mcrae), and he won the first season of Dancing With the Stars Juniors as a pro dancer alongside skateboarder Sky Brown. We are seriously impressed—and here's everything we learned about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
