Featuring Special Guest and MC for the night: Tyrone Proctor

Tyrone Proctor, nicknamed “The Bone” by the late, legendary Don Cornelius, is one of the last living pioneers of Waacking, the “grandmother” of vogue, which evolved in the gay black and Latino underground club scene of 1970s Los Angeles. He is sought worldwide as a judge, master teacher, groundbreaking choreographer, legendary dancer, street historian and progenitor of contemporary black street dance and hip-hop culture. What’s old is new again. An original Soul Train Gang dancer, Tyrone toured internationally with Don Cornelius and renowned dancers Damita Jo Freeman, Sharon Hill, Pat Davis, Scooby Doo, and Don “Campbellock” Campbell. With dance partner Sharon Hill, he won the 1975 American Bandstand competition and was among the first teachers at Soul Train Dance Studios in 1978. Tyrone and Jeffrey Daniels (Shalamar, Soul Train) founded The Outrageous Waack Dancers, with Jodi Watley, Sharon Hill, Cleveland Moses Jr., and Kirkland Washington. The group was featured in the August 1978 issue of Ebony and toured Las Vegas, Canada, and Japan. Tyrone Proctor is featured in the VH1 documentary Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America. His work as an Original Soul Train Gang dancer was also a main feature on Randy Jackson’s “America Best Dance Crew.”

ON BEHALF OF POUND IT HIP HOP DANCERS ASSOCIATION, WE LOOK FORWARD TO A LEGENDARY NIGHT OF SOUL TRAIN EXPERIENCE.
