Blackbox Studio Theater - Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center
Hip Hop Master Class with Clyde Evans, Jr.
This event is free and open to the public.
Clyde Evans, Jr., has been dancing Hip Hop ever since age 11. Performing dance has taken him all over the world to places such as Africa, Italy, London, Brazil, France, Finland, and Australia and allowed him to perform in 8 with stars like Will Smith, Jay Leno, Haley Berry, Mark Whalberg, Robert Redford, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bruce Willis, and M. Night Shyamalan, as well as appearing in commercials for the Superbowl, dance contest on BET, So You Think You Can Dance, performances for the X-Games, Sunny D as well as magazine and other print media. Evans has truly enjoyed the opportunities performing Hip-Hop has afforded him especially when it was for Michael Jackson but teaching has been equally rewarding. He has trained dancers who have appeared on America’s Best Dance Crew and in the Step Up movie franchise. Evans now instructs at both Montgomery Community College and Drexel University in the Philadelphia area. Sharing what he has learned with those who have a desire to learn it, is what’s most important to him!
