For a lot of us, the past months of community quarantine mean less work,  therefore more time to rest, more time to reset, and more time to explore new things. But for some, this has become an opportunity to reconnect with their passion and reignite the fire within them.

The past months have been really tough for most of us due to the multiple depressing scenarios brought by the year 2020, however, that shouldn’t be necessarily dim out inspiring stories of people who have been dedicating their time, efforts, and talent to uplift everyone’s morale in this time of uncertainties. One of them is the aspiring actor and former BidaMan contestant Dan Delgado who used his free time to reconnect with his passion and started sharing it with people around him.

On Sharing his Passion to Inspire others

Dan, who also had a fair share of struggles this pandemic, acknowledged that everyone has been emotionally and mentally affected by these unprecedented times. For this reason, he had decided to offer free online dance lessons for the kids, of course, with the goal of bringing positivity in these difficult times.

“It was a really great experience. You get to see how eager kids are to learn, and you see their growth from the start to finish. Dance is also a great way for them to let loose, learn, and enjoy throughout the pandemic.”

A passion that is kept a secret is meaningless, and Dan always knew that his talent needs to be shared and be seen for it to be meaningful. He wants to keep his passion alive and actually mean something to people around him, that’s why he takes responsibility for it and started sharing it with people.

“The love for dancing and performing is my biggest asset and it is something that I wish to pursue to continue inspiring people around me.”

On the Effect of the Pandemic

Just like most of us, Dan struggles to find work opportunities during the lockdown period. He always believes that it is important to be flexible and to develop our ability to adapt to any given situation.

“What I have realized the most in this pandemic is to adapt in any given circumstances. I don’t think any of us expected these things to happen so it is  a matter of adjusting to the situation.”

Currently, aside from being an online dance coach, Dan also worked as a Licensed Financial Advisor and had few performances in the noontime show, It’s Showtime.

Before the pandemic, Dan is slowly building his name as an actor and a performer in the local entertainment scene, however, everything is seemingly on hold now due to the pandemic. With his right mindset, admirable set of talents, and a strong support system, Dan knows that he will reach his goal in no time.

“Being an up-and-coming artist, I guess the most challenging part is having to build your brand for yourself. I am lucky that I have a full team that supports me throughout this journey.”

On getting real in front and behind the camera

Dan describes himself as laid back, easy to get along with, and a cozy guy who enjoys the simple joys in life. But more than that, Dan, who is now ready to conquer the bustling and ambition-filled world of showbiz, knows how to embrace his passion and continues sharing it with the rest of the world.

Our passions have the power to transform the world, and now, more than ever, we should focus on uncovering our passions and our true creative purpose. We may get distracted by all the bad happenings in the world right now, but always try to bring back our energy in everything we do.

Passionate energy can be contagious. Just like Dan, be the start of the domino effect.
