Traveling from the Philippines to Hong Kong, Nicco Gador has unlocked more potential in the field of dance and fitness than he imagined he could achieve. He is the ultimate performer, leading each training with unmatched passion and energy. As an ICON, Nicco takes the time to better himself—not only in the fitness world—but also by making connections with like-minded people around the world. When he isn’t teaching dance and fitness, you can find him working in the heart of Hong Kong as an in-house graphic designer and marketing assistant.
If you could live in any TV home, what would it be?
If I would be given a chance to live in any TV home, I would pick the Gryffindor Corridors. I am still waiting for my invitation to Hogwarts.
If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
I would definitely pick Michael Jackson. He has inspired me with his passion in music and reaching out to people through his craft.
What’s a great book you’ve read recently?
I’m a huge fan of horror, thriller, mystery and fiction. One of the books I’ve read recently is Something Rotten by Alan Gratz, which is a spinoff of Hamlet. I’m also a huge fan of Darren Shan’s books.
If you could choose your own rockstar nickname, what would it be?
I would probably use the same nickname I use when I join dance battles, which is WhosGadz, a word-play from Michael Jackson’s Who’s Bad.
What makes you feel supported?
I believe that verbal affirmation is one of the strongest forms of support. I feel more confident, supported and appreciated when my achievement echoes from other people.
What do you want people to say about you once you’re gone?
When I’m gone, I want people to remember me by how passionate I am in everything that I do.
Who’s your favorite rockstar (actual or figurative) and why?
My favorite dynamic duo, my parents, would definitely be my favorite rockstars. They taught me a lot in life and I will forever be thankful for their love and guidance.
