"Jake hails from Halifax, Nova Scotia and began practicing the art of urban dance late in 1998 but with little urban culture to draw from on the east coast of Canada, found his passion was a definite struggle. Finally in the summer of 2001, he was able to attend proper classes in L. A. The intensive was hosted by the Guzman-Sanchez brothers who were showcased in Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video. This changed everything for Jake as he now had the proper foundation in urban styles. Being the only urban dancer on the east coast to actually travel and train, Jake quickly made a reputation performing, instructing and tirelessly promoting Popping, Locking and Breaking in the Atlantic Provinces. Almost all of the dance crews and events in the east can be traced back to this enthusiastic ambassador. Jake has years of dance instruction experience in the Okanagan Valley through various Schools of Dance, Community Centres and private classes. His infectious energy and positive attitude adds to much to his classes and keeps students coming back for more. Based in Penticton, Jack still passionately travels coast to coast every year instructing and attending classes in the art of urban dance."
