Student Snapshot: Joel Cardenas


SAC student  tries out for 'America's Got Talent'

Joel Cardenas has years of dance experience under his belt so he wasn’t that nervous about an audition for “America’s Got Talent”  (AGT) held Jan. 12-13. 

The San Antonio College dance major heard about the auditions at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, secured a front -of-the-line pass, and put together a jazz routine to  “Lucky Strike” by Maroon 5 for his audition. Then he waited three hours for his shot at stardom.  His performance for one of the show’s producer was filmed and in addition, he was asked about his background.    Joel_talent 

“I’ve been on a lot of auditions; I don’t take it too personally,” he said. Cardenas, 21, hopes to hear back from AGT producers by the end of February. 

A native of Seguin, Cardenas graduated from Seguin High School. He spent summers in New York City with the American Ballet Theater and trained with the Joffrey Ballet School.  He also has taken classes at the Broadway Dance Center. 

When he isn’t attending classes at SAC, Cardenas works at the Studio of Dance & Cheer in New Braunfels.  He teaches classes in jazz, ballet, contemporary and evolution.  He has also choreographed routines for various high school dance teams. 

Asked about his favorite dancer, Cardenas cites Nick Lazzarini, winner of season one of “So You Think You Can Dance.”  For the past two years Cardenas has performed as the Nutcracker Prince in Ballet New Braunfel’s production of   “The Nutcracker.” 


 After graduation Cardenas hopes to transfer to Texas State University and complete his bachelor’s degree in Dance – with teaching being his ultimate goal. 

In the meantime, he waits for the callback from “America’s Got Talent.” Being a full-time student at SAC should keep him on his toes.
