He said, "Truth be told, I started dancing later in life. I began after serving in the army. I took a dance class at an academy but was not very skilled at it. Most of the students at the academy came for broadcasted dances, some of which were canceled. My monthly income was a mere $30."
Jay Black continued by saying, "Some days I ate ramen and some days I starved. I could not bring myself to tell my parents about how I was struggling."
Thinking about that tough time period in his life must have triggered some deep-rooted sadness because he shed tears on the show. Thankfully, he is doing much better financially.
