From Iran, Navid moved with his family to Canada where he was introduced to the diverse dance industry. He quickly fell in love and began training in hip hop, popping, boogaloo, jazz, locking, house and RnB dance. He has been noticed for his polite manner, his determination, his drive to become a better dancer, and last but not least, his silly personality.
Navid found himself involved with the notable PraiseTEAM studio recognized for their training in jazz, contemporary and ballet technique, as well as their strong hip hop background as seen in their silver-place win in the MegaCrew category at the World Hip Hop International competition in Las Vegas.
Favourite credits include the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony, Project Soul, KTL Company, We Day Vancouver, Nickelodeon’s movie Jinxed, music videos for Ka.lil, Starlight, and Brooke Turner, and the Disney movie directed by Kenny Ortega- Descendants.
Navid continues to learn and grow as a performer and actor, and feels blessed to share his love of performing both on stage and on camera. He enjoys teaching and sharing his own unique style of hip hop-mixing choreography with different styles of dance.
