Deaf dancer competes on MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew"

Joey Antonio is a member of ASIID., which is competing in Season 2 of MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew," which had its season premiere June 19. The Detroit group was founded so its members would have a reason to keep dancing after high school, so ASIID (And So It Is Done) was born.

Joey says on his MySpace page, "I'm hearing impaired (profoundly deaf), and I'm very blessed to be able to make the impossibilities into possibilities."

He's affiliated with the Deaf Performing Arts Network, (D-PAN).
