Praise the Lord! Wow! Months of waiting and days of traveling to nyc and auditioning was hectic, but it was worth it. It’s kind of surreal Jon M. Chu and Christopher Scott were also a part of the team in the movie Step Up 2 that inspired me to become a dancer!! 10 year old Reina is literally in a state of shock, it feels like it was just 2009 and I was sitting in front of the tv wishing I could be dancing in that tv screen. Now I get to be a part of a film that kids today especially New Yorkers will be inspired by!! Thank you to the entire creative team for allowing me to a part of this amazing experience! God I thank you for the ways in which you shape me into a better artist, servant, woman of God, and use my gifts to shed light on your kingdom✨👑 #ChildofGod #20&glowing #Latina #Afrolatina #Puertorico #boricua #intheheightsfilm #newyorker #dancer #movie #Film #linManuelMiranda #warnerbrospictures #InTheHeightsMovie
