A lifelong dancer & performer Dashaun has wowed crowds with his outstanding unique vogue dance style & charismatic personality!
His dedication, talent and ambition has landed Dashaun on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, in international commercials for Coca Cola and inspired the creation of the Hip Hop dance “The 5000” making him an internet and media sensation, garnering millions of hits on Youtube.
Born in Brooklyn, NY Dashaun was introduced to the underground NYC Ballroom scene in High school where the dance phenomenon vogue was created; from that initial introduction it captivated his attention.
August 2009 marked Vogue performance’s return to mainstream attention when Dashaun competed on the fourth season of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew as 1/5 of the dance group Vogue Evolution. The crew’s showcase of different elements of the vogue performance alongside popular urban dance moves took them to the top five in the competition. In January 2010 Dashaun was invited back to host the behind the scenes specials for “ABDC” season 5 interviewing & guiding new competitors on their journey.
Dashaun currently travels the world touring with his dance company & hosting international dance competitions in Helsinki, Finland, Stockholm, Sweden, St. Petersburg, Russia & Hong Kong, China. When Dashaun isn’t performing, he is passionate about speaking to school age kids about acceptance also a passionate advocate of HIV/AIDS awareness.
Newly synthesized, Bird Call explores a range of emotional territory with her voice, lyrics, and stage presence whilst providing an aural backdrop that is variably danceable, electronically driven, and, at times, futuristic and experimental.
"Miracle Man" is the first track from WWGTM, which the artist debuted in the form of a music video this past fall. Amidst the year of production, Bird lured new fans and perked ears while touring through the southeast in September 2012, showcasing at SXSW and CMJ, and opening for Brooklyn favorites including Majical Cloudz and Angel Olsen. Bird Call's second track "Phantom Limbs" will premiere in January of 2013 alongside some new NYC shows and winter/spring tour announcements.
