Get to know BalletX company member Jonah Delgado in 10 questions!

Jonah, if you could be any animal, what would it be?

Does an organism count? I’d be a tardigrade. They live in outer space, and can sustain life in space. 

Where in the world do you want to visit?

New Zealand, because the Hobbit was filmed there. 

What are some hobbies you enjoy when you’re not dancing?

Snowboarding, running, hiking. 

If you could only eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Beets, carrots, potatoes. 

If you could be an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?

Figure skating! I can picture it – me in a sequin dress. 

If you were guaranteed to be successful in a different profession, what would you do?

I’d like to be an electric vehicle engineer! Think Elon Musk. 

What is your favorite band/artist?

Polo & Pan. They’re like French soft EDM. 

What is one of your pet peeves?

It takes a lot to get to me….maybe when people go “ah” after taking a sip of a drink even though I do that sometimes. 

What is your favorite Philadelphia landmark?

I like the Schuylkill river path. 

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Oh wow…I think everyone should dress up in drag at least once in their lives!
