Since 2009, I've taught so many people throughout the years, all who are able to learn popping and TEAR UP the dance floor.

How Long Will This Course Take?

The best part about this course is you can go as fast or as slow as you want.

Learn all the moves but continue to go back and master each move so you can destroy the dance floor.

You don't need to practice everything, just take your favorite moves and master those.

Born and raised in New York City, I have trained with the best dancers NYC has to offer.

I've been dancing for over 13 years. I am a travelling dancer where I learn from the best dancers and teachers I can find.

I have toured around the world and performed for the biggest stages as well as for movies and television shows.

I as a Popper, Breakdancer, House dancer and overall student. I love learning new skills and mastering them using a very basic tool set that allows me to learn in a faster time.

I teach my students how to use this kind of tool set.

I love teaching I love teaching and would like to share my experiences with everyone.
