A man identified as one of the victims fatally shot by a gunman at Orlando LGBT nightclub Pulse was a dancer who performed at the 2014 Atlanta Bachata, and heartbreaking video has emerged of that performance.

Xavier Emmanuel Serrano Rosado, 35, performed as an exhibition dancer during the event, reports the AJC’s Jennifer Brett. She also spoke to the event’s director Jose Maldonado.

“I’ve been a dancer for 15 years. We’re all young and think we’re indestructible,” he told Brett. “The next thing you know, something like this happens. Somebody so full of life, so young and talented. It wasn’t his time. He had so many dreams.”

Maldonado tracked down video of Rosado’s performance, set to Coldplay’s “Fix You.” This is not an easy watch.

    Excellent dancing!; but, I don’t know why under “Bachata” heading It’s like labeling a box of oranges as “apples”.
