My name is Riquelson Pierre-Louis, I normally go by the nickname of ” Ricky “. I have been dancing ever since I was 9 years old. I never really took dance seriously until I was about 17 years old. This is when I discovered Hip-hop, and fell in love with the culture and the raw and authentic energy and passion it had. I immediately started to do my research and study the history of Hip-hop and also the foundation of Hip-hop dance. Now that I have mastered the style I attended many battles and showcases, and I am also allowed to share and pour my new found knowledge into those willing to learn and experiment. Ever since Hip-hop found me, I have turned into a better me. I have also joined a Hip-hop dance crew, that is now one of the most known dance crews here in Southwest Florida. I’ve been with this crew for 3 years now and they have been a part of my Hip-hop journey and without them, my growth couldn’t get any better. Now I would love to share my experience with the rest of the world.
