Darrin Dewitt Henson's talents emerged at age five while growing up in the birthplace of hip-hop, the Bronx. Inspired by the legendary Michael Jackson and sparked by the evolution of a new genre unfolding before him, Henson began perfecting his dance skills by performing with local street crews at venues around the city. After high school, he began choreographing which led to landing his first job working with director Lionel Martin. Henson's first acting role was in Martin's film, "Long Shot."
As a choreographer, Henson has worked with many musical artists including Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez. Henson was nominated for a MTV Music Award for his work on Jordan Knight's video "Give it to You," and won the award for Best Music Video at the 2000 MTV Music Awards for N'Sync's "Bye, Bye, Bye" video.
He continues to expand his talents as a screenplay writer and businessman. Henson created one of the hottest dance videos in 2001 entitled "Darrin's Dance Grooves." He spends time doing big brother charity work and holding Darrin's Dance Grooves seminars. In 2003, Henson also hopes to open Grooves, a summer camp for kids who do not perform well during the school year. The camp will combine academic advancement with dance to heighten self-esteem and promote scholastic excellence.… Expand
