David Hallberg made history last year when he became the first American premier dancer for the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.

But while growing up in Ph*enix, Hallberg was bullied for dancing to the point that he had to change schools.

"It was a very, very hard time," said Hallberg, now 29. "But my desire to dance and my love for it shined through, and it bloomed into a career."

Hallberg went on to perform internationally, snagging prestigious roles in ballets such as "Swan Lake," "Romeo and Juliet" and "Don Quixote."
