Soul Capital EP on Spotify Soul Capital EP on Apple Music FB @NatJames IG @natjamesworld Reggie ‘Roc’ Gray American dancer and choreographer Reggie (Regg Roc) Gray was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of three, he became fascinated by Michael Jackson, and as a teenager, he turned to the hyper-expressive styles of dance that originated in the Jamaican street culture of Brooklyn, such as bruk-up and dancehall. He was one of the founders of a new hybrid dance form, FlexN: a combination of various styles from the local scene, such as bone breaking, pauzin, gliding, get-low, connecting, hat tricks and punchlines. The style was named after the regional TV programme Flex N Brooklyn, where local dancers showed off their latest moves. Reggie has travelled all over the world with his award-winning dance crew Ring Masters, and in 2011 he founded a new company, named The D.R.E.A.M. RING (Dance Rules Everything Around Me). In 2015, he produced his first major choreography, FLEXN, for the Park Avenue Armory in New York. This production went on to tour the Brisbane Festival, the Festival de Marseille, the Napoli Teatro Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, and Dartmouth College. Gray is a regular feature on American TV, for example in the third season of America's Best Dance Crew, various adverts, and in music videos for Wayne Wonder, Sean Paul, Nicki Minaj and other artists. Last year, together with his crew, he provided choreography for Public Works; The Odyssey (2015) at New York's Public Theater.
