Hip Hop Choreographer/ Teacher
Adrian Daniel began dancing as a member of Votally Togue, a dance group that rocked the talent scouting ‘Party Time’ explosion in the early 90’s. He has been taught by the famous Emilio "Buddha Stretch" Austin, Jr., from the US and Cindy Claes of Belgium.
Adrian has choreographed for/ taught at several companies, groups and schools including the T&T Body Building Federation, Chag Beauty Pageant (2004-2005), 2Intrigue, St. Andrews Private, Bishops Anstey POS, Holy Name Convent, St. Francois Girls’ College, St. George’s College, St. Joseph College, St. Joseph Convent, Providence Girls Catholic School and the University of the West Indies.
In 2003, Adrian was handpicked along with five other local dancers to form high profile hip hop dance group Eclectik with the aim of penetrating the international market. The group copped five medals from the World Hip Hop Championships in Los Angeles including the gold medal in 2007.
Adrian joined Elle NYTT in 2009 with the intention of creating similar dance opportunities for young and upcoming hip hop dancers. He choreographed for and led Elle NYTT’s all girls hip hop crew, Cruelle, to place 3rd in the 2009 national T&T Hip Hop Champions in the Adult Category and further led them to represent Trinidad and Tobago at the World Hip Hop Champions that year. In the same year Adrian was picked to judge one of Trinidad and Tobago’s first reality dance series, BMobile Dance off. He has worked as a choreographer for the Carnival Presentations for Trini Revelers and for Kes the Band for 2009 and 2010.
Presently Adrian continues to head the hip hop department at Elle NYTT, and is especially committed to teaching kids and teenagers the style of dance.
