Tyler "PartyPat" Brown
I create art for the world. Dance is my free form expression. Its raw, and full of soul. I feel dancing in your dreams is a sign to open up. I realized throughout my years many people use dance to break out of their comfort zones. Or maybe you have a calling to dance. You never know. My dance is from my soul. I wake up in the morning and immediately begin dancing. It's a huge part of me. No matter what song comes on I get the urge to go off and it's hard to contain. I am the essence of dance and will continue to grow as such."
