Harj Rai

Non Union

Harj began dancing in the 80s with street dancers and break dancers, choreographing freestyle routines influenced by the old school hip hop styles of popping, waving and locking. While making a name for himself in the underground dance circuit, he began to explore dance classes in other styles. Always staying true to his roots, Harj has made a career fusing the original, classic styles of hip hop, with newer, more commercial styles. Over 20 years has passed, and he can still hold his own amongst any dancer.

Harj enjoys teaching where he has created his own unique style of hip hop, mixing choreography with break dancing and acrobatics, as well as the Brazilian martial art form Capoeira. He is a faculty member for Street Groove- the Hip Hop Convention, and still travels across North America to share his passion and authentic style with others.

As a performer, Harj has toured and performed with many big names throughout the UK, US and Europe. His first recognizable dance gig was as a featured dancer in the music video Ghetto Superstar with Mya, Pras and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Commercial credits include Nissan, and a series of US National McDonald’s commercials with Britney Spears and N’Sync. Film and TV credits include Scooby Doo Too: Monsters Unleashed, Nick Cannon produced Ragz: The Musical, and the WB’s Hellcats. Other memorable credits include the 2006 XX Olympic Games in Torino, Italy, the Atomic Kitten UK Tour, and several seasons with the NBA’s Vancouver Grizzlies Dance Team.

Harj is also a national level soccer player, a professional hairstylist, and married to his beautiful wife Leah.
