Meet Ben, a hip hop dancer from Los Angeles, California. Ben originally went to school for Finance, but when he graduated decided to follow his real passion of dancing and moved to LA. He waited tables until a year ago when an open casting call changed his life and he was picked out of over 500 people.
It’s no surprise that Ben’s favorite type of music is hip-hop. He was recently in CoCo Jones‘ video ‘Holla at the DJ‘ and Rihanna’s latest album, ‘Unapologetic‘, is on repeat on his iPod. “Music makes me feel empowered,” he said. Ben’s favorite dance move is the head slide (we had to ask!) and Michael Jackson‘s ‘Billy Jean‘ always gets him dancing.
Ben describes his personal style as hipster meets hip-hop. “I think it mirrors my personality – mellow on the outside with a little kick”. Ben wears his AE Shorts longer when he is headed to dance class or shorter and rolled when he is relaxing. His favorite accessories are hats… and of course his headphones!
