This Hip Hop dance class is geared towards dancers pre-teen and above with dance experience. Please note, there will be no Teen Modern this night, March 13th. Modern dancers are encouraged to come to this class.
Harry Weston grew up in Santa Cruz, surrounded by West African dance and drumming, his first artistic inspirations. He fell in love with hip-hop dance culture at age 15, changing his life and setting him on a path of creativity, community engagement, teaching and mentorship.
At the age of 18, Harry moved to Los Angeles to study dance at UCLA. A year later, in 2009, his journey in the arts and greater Los Angeles community began. He was asked to join Versa-Style Dance Company, became a Teaching Artist for the Flourish Foundation, and became program counselor for the UCLA Summer Dance Theater Intensive.
In 2012, after graduating UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in World Arts and Cultures with a concentration in Dance, plus a minor in Civic Engagement, he continued growing in all three endeavors.
Today, he is a Principal Dancer and Partnerships Manager for Versa-Style, Program Director for The Flourish Foundation, and Co-Director for what is now called the UCLA Dance/Performing Arts Summer Institute.
We welcome Harry back to Dancenter!
