    Hector Lopez

    Hector Lopez



    Hector Lopez, a native Bronxite, graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Theater Studies in 2012. It was there that he began dancing, pursuing it as his career shortly after his graduation. Since then Hector has worked as a professional dancer under the choreographic direction of Yanis Marshall, Kyle Hanagami, Ashle Dawson, Luam Keflezgy, Ramon Baynes, and Yvonne Marie-Sain . His credits to date include artists such as Halsey, Prince Royce, Pabllo Vittar, and Todrick Hall as well as industrial work with Samsung, Adidas, and Moncler. With the guidance of his mentors Hector has been able to transition into teaching. Over the past three years Hector has established himself as an educator in Street Jazz, Jazz Funk, and more specifically Heels Technique.

    Class Description:

    Heels instill a sense of stature, authority, and power. Hector hopes to leave students feeling empowered physically and mentally with an elevated sense of self by establishing an environment in which students are building a strong technical foundation and claiming ownership of the information. In doing so, they are able to apply the technique when working and learning other styles.
