DE Patrick Grigo aka Parrish

P1XG Dancer, Choreographer, Dance pedagogue, World record holder, Host, Photographer, Blogger, Producer, Writer, Designer, Organizer, Manager, Promoter, Researcher of dance
39 Years
from Jena (Germany)
at present Burghausen (Germany)
active since 1994

Since 1994 he has been active in the Urban Dance scene and the Hip Hop scene and is a passionate asserter of this culture. Aged 14 he got his first contact with B-Boying which laid the foundation stone for his development, his way of thinking and his life. Wholeheartedly he consecrated himself to B-Boying, practised with his former crew "Churchtown Rockers" in cellar rooms and on the street. Together they went to jams and battles, which at that time were a real rarity and tried to obtain as much information as possible about this form of dance. The key step came at the age of 23 when Patrick decided to quit his job as a design draftsman and dared to take a plunge into the world of the selfemployed artist.

For some time he had been taking part in competitions and later he organised some of them himself. Workshops, shows, training camps, his work as judge, his open nature and the capability to communicate offered him a large international network. He has a very special approach to children who experience a completely new Me of themselves in his classes and who adore him. As trainer with a special eye for talents and young people with unique skills he succeeds in supporting the capability of each of his pupils and guiding it into the right direction.

In 2005 he created the Summerskillz Dance Festival and one year later came the idea for the Eve Dance Festival which has become a renowned event in the West-European region and attracts more and more people every year.
