Events

Feeling isolated? Missing your friends? Feel the need to dance it out?

Join our weekly “Dance Community Happy Hour” series, where you can kick back and connect with your peers through dance and good music! A mix between an open practice session and a party, this virtual space will welcome new hip-hop dance artists each week as “party hosts” to create a lively, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. Music will be mixed by a live DJ to keep the party going. No dance experience necessary. Come join our community!

ABOUT

walker smiling in purple shirtBorn and raised in New Jersey, I am a raw mover with a freestyle background. Growing up in NJ, I started off as a Jersey club freestyle dancer who then began entering “all style” battle events with movement training from my God Brother, Rob Bynes. As I studied more under him, I soon developed a love for Hip-Hop and took it upon myself to explore my own movement and apply it to my training. After years of exploration, I began utilizing my knowledge and transitioning towards choreographing as well as remaining a student to dance. In the summer of 2017, I signed to Clear Talent Group NY and have been full throttle with dance ever since; training, teaching, and performing has been primary my roots for growth. My style is groovy hip-hop, hip-hop with soul is my intent so all of my classes provide moves and grooves with purpose.
