After his eyes were first opened to the dance world back in 2005, there was no turning back. Being a college student however, RK was only able to sneak away to NYC every once in a while to explore his dream. Finally building up the courage to fully commit to his passion, in 2008 RK began to train frequently in NYC and everything else began to fall into place.

RK has since moved to New York City and had the pleasure of working with choreographers such as Nappy Tabs, Gil Dulduloa, Luther Brown, Parris Goebel, Nu Stylz, Rhapsody James, Tweetie, Dana Foglia, Luam, Jermaine Brown, Lajon Dantzler, Kelly Peters, Jamie J, and more.

Most recently RK has assisted with choreography on Ariana Grande’s “The Honeymoon Tour”. While continuing to further his dance training, RK is now also venturing off into many other forms of creative expression.
