Rupert's alias of "Ru-Tang the Veganese Art Warrior" emerged from his involvement in Hip-Hop and formed with his continued commitment to the culture. As an MC or dancer, it is important to find some-kind of strong persona when engaging in cyphers and battles. The "Veganese Art Warrior" is just this.
With a foundation in basic break technique of top-rocks, foot-work and freezes, and with knowledge of Hip Hop Party moves and grooves, Ru-Tang is most capable of teaching beginner students from ages 5-18, but also facilitates workshops with older dancers looking for an introduction to the art-form. He has been employed by the same studio since 2013 and continues to love his job.
As a dance performer, Ru-Tang has performed on stage with a Tribe Called Red, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, VCC gamelan ensemble, Project Soul, SOULdiers, and Streetrich Hip Hop society. He has facilitated workshops for the YMCA, Boldskool, Sam's Dance, IndigenEYEZ, , Power of Hope and also through Art Starts.
