HERE’S A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ROB!
The Rock Dance also known as “Rocking” or the “Uprock” has been the center of controversy in the B-Boy Community for the past 15 years!
The war-like dance started in NYC during the late 60s and was the precursor to Breakdancing and paralleled the Disco Era.
Due to the exclusiveness of The Brooklynights and New York Natives, Rocking has been a secretive form of dance… Until NOW!
Rob Nasty is a Champion Uprocker and established B-Boy from the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 20 years.
He has made personal pilgrimages to Brooklyn NYC and learned from the best of the best at this style of dance.
A seasoned veteran in all forms of “Rocking”,
Rob Nasty is leading the next generation of dancers into the “New Rock Era”, and is dedicated to spreading “Rock Dance Culture” around the world!
