New York City-based dancer and choreographer extraordinaire Blacka di Danca has been traveling the world spreading the gospel of dancehall through classes and appearances at top dance studios and clubs from Mexico to Siberia. He’s currently on his latest tour across Europe, where he had a chance to see history being made as dancehall was added to Juste Debout, the world’s largest street dance competition, earlier this month.

The Winter Olympics weren’t the only international culture clash happening in Russia last month. While the world’s greatest cold-weather athletes were proving themselves in Sochi, our Blacka Di Danca was in Moscow getting an army of Russian dancers in sync with dancehall during his latest instructional tour. If this video (an Instagram-sized preview of a more extensive clip to come) doesn’t speak volumes about dancehall’s global appeal, we don’t know what does.

If you’ve been following me through my column “Blacka’s World,” then you know that I recently choreographed Major Lazer’s latest music video (for “Lose Themselves” featuring RDX) with the help of Mela Murder—and that choreo came out fantastic! I’ll be teaming up yet again with Mela to teach my only dancehall class for the month of January in NYC, Friday, Jan. 10 at DANY Studios in Manhattan.
