• Workshops: Teach workshops focusing on developing urban art dance skills

and techniques to young emerging artists. Workshops

are held at schools,

colleges, camps, community/recreation centers and other public venues

throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I train and encourage students to use

their bodies in ways that help them to develop and execute various stylistic

techniques and creative rhythmic talents that may lead up to stage

performances or theatrical shows.

• Lecture Demonstrations: Provide educational presentations explaining the

history of Hip Hop dance; bestowing positive influences to youth through

speech, technique and expression of all Hip Hop dance styles.

• Shows & Performances: Choreograph and perform in various theatrical shows,

inspiring youth through positive messages, such as anti–drug, alcohol

awareness, no bullying and self-discipline.
