SPULU

SPULU grew up in Oakland, CA where he discovered dance at a very early age. He learned Pacific Islander dance movements from his mother and that led him to explore other dance genres such as Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Pan-African, and hip hop. He is a Choreographer and Teacher and has performed on video's, TV, and lives on major stages in the Bay Area, Southern California, Las Vegas, Utah, and New York City. His current Black Lives Matter piece "Black vs. Blue" has been featured at the 2015 National Queer Rebel Festival, Kearny Workshop Art Festival, Pacific Islander Leaders of Tomorrow Institute, and the Hip Hop International Dance Festival. He is an honorary member of the Zaccho Dance Theatre Company and a member of San Francisco Rising Rhythm Project and House of Prolific. SPULU studied Dance at San Francisco State University with an emphasis in Race and Resistance Studies. In the future, he hopes to pursue his Ph.D. in Pacific Islanders Studies.
