THREE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW
About Dr. Swart
He was once a competitive hip hop dancer. His first ever solo performance was to Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It!”
As a toddler he use to constantly run around with big bird sneakers on in his birthday suit (multiple pictures were taken); this was done so frequently that when he graduated high school his family put one of the pictures on his graduation cake for everyone’s general amusement!
Just before high school, when bowl cuts were popular, he dyed his hair bleach blonde. It was so blonde that people use to call him a Q-tip; he has had a shaved head ever since!
