“The biggest thing I took away from GBD was to always remember why I’m in dance.”
P106, 2012 George Brown Dance Graduate
Starting out as just a hobby, dance has grown into more than just a passion; it’s his way of life. He has had the opportunity to work with such artists as Divine Brown at the 2011 “Toronto New Year’s Bash”, and for Lady Gaga at the 2011 “Much Music Video Awards.” He is the founder and choreographer for the new all male Hip-Hop dance crew, The O.G. Crew (Original Gentlemen), and is a P106 – Commercial Dance – Jazz & Hip Hop faculty member at George Brown Dance. Over the past few years Derick has developed and refined his own style of dance. Derick’s choreography is based with Hip-Hop, but he likes to fuse it with other styles such as African and contemporary.
