It’s getting Hip Hop hot in Soldotna as Darcy Swanson of Forever Dance welcomes popular Hip Hop artist Brian “Bizzy” Linder to her family of dance instructors. A native of Chester, PA, he continues to carve out his lane through choreography and creative direction. Not only is he passionate about the arts, but also he is passionate about giving back to multiple communities across the nation and has donated his time and talent to a wide variety of charities across America. Bizzy has worked with the likes of Will.I.AM, Alicia Keys, Cee-Lo Green, Flo-RIDA, Ludacris, Jill Scott, Jazmine Sullivan, Enrique Inglesias and appeared in the motion picture Stomp The Yard: Homecoming and many more. “Darcy gave me an amazing opportunity to come to Alaska and make this my new home. I want to be a great example of Hip Hop art and instruct the dancers on dance foundations and correct formations,” Bizzy told the Dispatch. He has been dancing professionally for 14 years, “I think dance has been embedded in my DNA and I was mentored along the way by some great world class talents in the Hip Hop industry. It has helped me understand my niche and what I want to do in life. Hip Hop is just one discipline of dance, but also has a lot to teach about dance theory because it has time, space and energy the foundations of all dance. Like ballet it complements many other styles of dance art form and helps you enhance your own style and discover your dancer within and to be true to yourself and to become who you are,” said Bizzy. He says all ages from 3 on are welcome to learn and enjoy Hip Hop classes.

For those who have missed the summer season Forever Dance will be presenting a Hip Hop Masterclass Saturday, August 20th with Hip Hop sensation Erick “Spider” Paul from Los Angeles leading the class. For more information contact Forever Dance at 907-262-1641 or go to www.foreverdance.com. The new fall season will be starting September 6th at Forever Dance.
