One Step Ahead:
We will touch on intros with toprocks and delve into themes and drills. The importance of transitions and go downs. Finally we will get creative with some concepts in storytelling.
Ricky “Stuntman” RocAny began dancing in January 1993. Starting out as a hobby, it quickly developed into a lifelong passion. In the summer of ’95, he was introduced to the word B-Boy (the correct terminology for “breakdancer”) and the knowledge of the dance. For the next couple of years, he practiced hard and began to “pay dues.” He developed his own individual style, experimenting with ideas and concepts that pushed the boundaries of creativity in the dance.
Through the late 1990′s, he travelled all over the U.S. competing, performing, judging, and making guest appearances. Perhaps the hallmark of his style was his strong emphasis on musicality and dancing, often channelling not only the instruments of a song but the lyrics, as well. His unique character and originality gained him notoriety among both pioneers and contemporaries.
In May of 2000, Stunts officially joined Style Elements, a crew he had been close friends with since 1996.
He has also been chosen to dance in various USA All-Star teams competing both in Paris and London, as well as performances in Mexico, Canada, Sweden, Spain, Holland, and Switzerland, Finland, Panama, Russia just to name a few…
Other credits include: articles and prints in magazines such as The Source, Dancers Delight (Japan), Show and Prove (SP), and Vibe; his very own B-Boy trading card; various music videos; a feature in The Wade Robson Project pilot; and an appearance on the TV show Dancing with the Stars.
Currently he’s an active member of Style Elements Crew, the California President of Furious Styles Crew and Associate Director of “One Step Ahead” Dance Company.
