About Me

My name is Jason Tai Dang. I am a 27 year old Vietnamese-American, born and raised in Houston, Texas. I've been BBoying since the summer of 2006 and I've dedicated more than half of my life crafting my technique, artistry, and musicality into the Hip Hop/BBoy culture. After graduating high school, I shared my passion and dove into teaching students in after-school programs, studios, or BBoys/Hip Hop dancers in the Houston surrounding area.

Teaching feeds my soul so much, but when I wasn't teaching, I'd compete and perform by myself or with my crew, The Brothers. We would travel to represent Texas at different competitions and events coast to coast resulting in many new friends and victories. I appreciate the lessons I learn in my losses because I'd come back inspired to improve my skills.

With an immense passion for movement, I wanted to challenge my knowledge learned outside of school by enrolling back into school, furthering my education at San Jacinto Community College (South Campus). I had very little experience in the dance world of ballet, contemporary, modern, etc. but working as the front desk/Hip Hop instructor at a dance studio inspired me to be apart of the wonderful dance program at San Jacinto Community College. Upon returning to college, I joined Cirque La Vie, a local Houston Cirque/Circus Arts company that performs around Houston, picking up the skill of one hand balancing. (This is also done in BBoying but statically.) After training one hand balancing, I bridged my love for balance from BBoying and Cirque arts with yoga; I trained with Lex Gillian at The Yoga Institute to complete my 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training (RYTT-200), becoming a certified yoga instructor.
After graduating from San Jacinto Community College with an Associate of Arts, I auditioned to be apart of the dance program at Sam Houston State University where I am currently attending to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance in Huntsville, Texas.


I will continue to learn and practice my love for dance and movement, with the support of my family and friends. With an open heart and curious mind to learn, I will explore other genres of knowledge or movement to add to my versatility as a teacher, dancer, performer and person.
