Sir Ledgen is a Jamaican-born, animated firestorm of organic movement coupled with pure passion for craft. He’s been dancing since his “diaper days” as a toddler in his living room. He then migrated to New York, where he began dancing professionally shortly after. Sir Ledgen has trained in styles such as hip-hop, house, popping, waving, and isolations, to name a few, while keeping a strong core in his native style of dance, dancehall. Since then, he ventured into theater, working with Young Jean Lee’s “The Shipment”, on stage at the international Reggae & World Music Awards (IRAWMA), and even in John M. Chu’s “Step Up 3D” movie. His Jamaican roots, and hybrid style of dance, allowed him to travel across the US, Canada, and internationally to Europe, where he received a standing ovation for his performance at the Justé Debut (JDH) event in Paris, France. During his travels, he teaches workshops, performs, and holds seminars about the history of dancehall culture. He’s taught at the Justé Debut School in Paris, and at Broadway Dance Center in NYC. Sir Legen is featured in Kiesza’s “No Enemiesz” music video as a dancer & specialty choreographer, and played a role in her “Sound of A Woman” album trailer, as an actor. His choreography and dancing skills have been featured in many different art forms, including Busta Rhymes’ “Twerk It” remix music video ft Nicki Minaj & Pharrell and Rihanna’s “Work” music video ft. Drake. He’s performed for Central Park’s “Summer Stage” and Cablevision’s “FUSE TV” for the Hustle After-Party show plus and many more. Sir Ledgen is also a member of Ragga Jam USA. Always a student of the arts, he continues to share his cultural experiences around the world.
