Each week on Dancing with the Stars, Jordan Fisher and his partner, Lindsay Arnold, wowed audiences with their routines. But the pair’s contemporary performance would be truly special – both for its beauty and for the story behind it. And Fisher let his childhood inspire the dance, which meant that he had to share his past trials with the world.
It was during Fisher’s younger years, however, that the actor and singer started to perform, since he earned a part in his school play, School House Rock, Jr., as a fifth-grader. He then went on to enroll in Birmingham, Alabama’s Red Mountain Theatre Company as a member of the youth group.
From there, Fisher caught the eye of a talent scout and moved from his native Alabama to Los Angeles, California, in 2011. And in Hollywood, his career took off in both music and on television. He released songs on Radio Disney and through Hollywood Records while also nabbing roles in a number of TV shows, including iCarly, Liv and Maddie and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
