Regg Roc Gray - FLEXN

Regg Roc Gray - FLEXN

Flexn is a relatively new dance style that emerged from Jamaican Dancehall and Brooklyn reggae clubs and an intermediary style called “Brukup”. In the ‘90s it developed into its present form in Brooklyn. The people who invented it are still very much present in performances and in the Flexn community. To watch its continuing evolution is exciting, because its past, present and future are happening right before our eyes. Flexers are storytellers, and many of the stories that are danced represent the dancers’ personal struggles. Each dancer, or group of dancers, choreographs his or her piece. Like jazz, Flexn is improvisational, so each time a piece is performed, it’s different.

Regg Roc Gray is the originator of one of the Flexn styles, Pauzin. He is also the founder of the D.R.E.A.M. Ring.
