“Future” (Daniel E. Kelley III)

New York · New York · united states

Born and raised in the “Boogie Down” Bronx, New York City, he began his pursuit of

**The Elements of HIP HOP Culture** (1979-80) with the ORIGINAL true form of

Hip Hop dance "BREAKIN", but soon fell in love with the style of dance known as "Electric Boogie"(NY style POPPING) at the age of ten in his neighborhood and school gatherings. In the dance he learned under pioneers such as Lil Shake and in later years Louie New-wave (R.I.P.).

At the age of sixteen (1985), he was introduced to the club styles of “HOUSE” after going to clubs in Manhattan. Having mastered the Hip-hop and House styles, he began to showcase his ability to freestyle in the most challenging forum known to the Street dancer -“The Circle”.

In addition to dance, he trained in Martial arts with Grandmaster “Shi-han Dai Rai-Noh” of the Ketsu-Rai Black Winds Association. This duality helped him to fuse his soulfulness with a unique control of his movements giving him an edge over the dancers who only knew how to improvise to beats. Since then he is well known throughout the international dance community for his unique style “fusing” Hip Hop, Popping, House, &martial arts, known as "HOUSE WAVING".

In 2007 he entered the World Premier Urban Dance Festival, "House Dance International held in New York City, and is a 3X Winner, 2007, 2008, 2010 in the "Experimental" category.
