Holliston, Mass. – The Dancing Arts Center welcomes dancer, performer and choreographer Ricardo Foster, Jr. as a master teacher for its hip hop workshops. Foster will teach the first Sunday of every month from October to May.
The Boston native has been involved in the entertainment industry for more than thirteen years, using his special talents as a dancer, choreographer, performer, actor, comedian, and model.

Foster has performed with artists such as Jay-Z, NSYNC,  En-vogue, Uncle Cracker, Destiny's Child and Wu-Tang.  He also has been featured in performances with classic acts such as Naughty by Nature and RUN DMC.

He has appeared in commercials for McDonalds, Marshalls, Citizens Bank, and Fleet Bank, and has had television spots on BET Madd Sports, MTV Dances from the Hood, VH1 Behind the Music, Access Hollywood, and Entertainment Tonight.
Named one of the one of the best performers on the East Coast, Foster also has been featured in the off Broadway musical Moses, and the Boston production of The Wiz.

“Ricardo’s depth of dance and performance expertise, along with the comedy, simple physical analogies, and story-like premise he uses behind his movements, will offer DAC students a rich experience as they attend this year’s hip hop sessions,” says Dance Arts Center Director Karyn Edison. “His focus on trying to help students find an appreciation and love of dance and themselves is a strong complement to our own philosophy toward dance.”
