Reggie “Regg Roc” Gray was born in East New York. His journey with dance began when he was 3. Introduced to reggae music by his family, Reggie took a liking to it. He wanted to learn this dance style, called Dancehall/Brukup. He and his friends went on to form an elite dance group based on this type of dance. The group HYPERACTIVE eventually led to Reggie being a pioneer in developing a new genre of dance – FLEXIN. Reggie has explored his passion further by co-directing FLEXN with Peter Sellers at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. He believes that dancers must realize their role as innovators.
In a week-long residency, Regg Rock and guest artists such as Glenn Kotche (Wilco), Jeff Zeigler (former cellist of Kronos Quartet), and Andy Akiho (Rome Prize Composer), will be composing, creating and producing a live professional recording so that he can have a fully realized concept. The music and dance are linked and are equal counterparts in this style.
