When it comes to dance, the Pasadena Art Center - Dance Street CA offers a wide range of styles for social dancers and aspiring professionals alike. From Rumba and Swing to Samba, Salsa, Tango, and Waltz, the center provides a comprehensive selection of dance forms for all levels. Huu Rock, a renowned dancer from New York City, was introduced to the various dance styles, music, and culture that the city has to offer. This inspired him to explore the different forms of dance around the world, including their styles, roles, and cultural significance.
At the age of four, Huu Rock began experimenting with theater and at six he started his tap dancing training at The Ruth Williams Dance School and The Dance Theatre Of Harlem. He was taught the fundamentals of modern dance technique and how to apply them in practice. The Arts in the Parks program brings visual arts to the community by creating murals and art installations in parks and facilities of the Foothills Park Recreation District &.
