The 31-year-old La Habra Heights director, actor, dancer, and choreographer—and son of Anaheim Ballet founders Lawrence and Sarma Lapenieks Rosenberg—created the first regular video ballet podcast. Since the premiere with Korean-born dancer Jimmy Cha, these fun video postcards have racked up nearly 47 million views. Excerpts have been licensed by Dr Pepper, and shown on “Dancing With the Stars.” The channel also has helped him get nondance gigs for his company, Sicshot Productions. “I love ballet. I love the arts, but I also liked bringing a little bit of that artistic sensibility to a promo for a go-kart track.”
