Autism Can Make Him Feel Angry, So He Found Something to Make Him Feel Free
The 19-year-old professional dancer from London has autism, making social situations difficult for him. But through his art, he’s found a way to break free of any anger and connect with the world. In the video below, Flex brings the judges to tears in his mind-bending performance on “Got to Dance,” a televised British dance competition.
“It’s hard for me to give you eye contact. I don’t really give eye contact,” Flex said, according to UnrealityTV. “Dancing helps; it makes me feel free.”

Flex made it to the semi-finals of the competition before being voted off, according to News Shopper. But the exposure has already opened up new career opportunities for him. On his Facebook page, for example, he recently posted a video of him performing with British pop star Rita Ora.
