He has been dancing for over 25 years and teaching Hip-hop and breaking for the last 15+ years around the Triangle area and across North Carolina. In 2019, he started an organization and dance company known as Soul Struck with the intention of providing the community with access to real Street Dance knowledge and culture while also providing Street Dancers safe places to practice and teach. Jose is passionate about about making sure others are able to eat at the table and is working on providing opportunities for other Street Dancers and his community through the arts.
