About the Instructor
Henry Link grew up in the projects of Brooklyn. The first time he laid eyes on the art form of hip-hop dance was when he saw his older sister getting down to the beat. Shortly thereafter, locking, popping, freestyle, and breaking appeared in his life. Link was fascinated by these styles of dance and became determined to master their techniques by practicing relentlessly, regardless of any mistakes or challenges. His natural ability to dance start to show and, with a bit of confidence, he entered and won many local talent shows. After graduating from Canarsie High School, he met Rosie Perez and his career in dance and choreography started to take flight. His dedication paid off when his style of dance landed him in music videos for Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey. Today, Link is a founding member of Elite Force Crew and one of the world’s most charismatic figures in the art of freestyle dancing.
