Nervous Teen Overcomes Fears To Grace “AGT: All-Stars” Stage With Jaw-Dropping Dance.

Darius Mabda dancing on America's Got Talent All Stars

Being a professional performer sometimes means being able to tuck your nerves away in a little box so you can get the job done.

At just 14 years old, Darius Mabda of Romania has already learned to compartmentalize his anxiety so that he can fly through the air as a dancer. He started dancing about six years ago after being inspired by dancers on “America’s Got Talent,” and he made a name for himself in his home country by winning “Romania’s Got Talent.” Now, standing on the stage of “AGT: All-Stars,” Darius was overcome by emotion standing on “the biggest stage in the world.”

Darius wiped away tears as he told the judges what being on the AGT stage means to him, but when it was time to perform, he was all business!

Darius’s dance style is a combination of modern and ballet, with some incredibly impressive gymnastic flips thrown in for good measure. Judge Howie Mandel described Darius as “a combination of Nadia Comaneci and Mikhail Baryshnikov.”

Watch Darius overcome his nerves to give an amazing performance in the video below, and be sure to share.
