EUROPEAN TOUR 2020
Boysie Roses was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in the Jungle community of Arnett Gardens. He found his passion for dance at the age of 13 when the legendary dancer and originator of Dancehall, Gerald “Bogle” Levy, invited Boysie to accompany him to a party after seeing his skills and finesse on the football (soccer) field in their community. It was there that he recalled having his first real experience of the Dancehall Nightlife / Lifestyle and instantly fell in love. After that night he did not miss another ‘dancehall night’ at the club. This chapter of his life served as an indirect training period for him as a Dancehall Dancer, where he learned all of Bogle steps, slangs and expressions. From there, Boysie won numerous award for dancing and became inseparable from Bogle. In 2004, Bogle invited Boysie to tour with him all around Jamaica and the USA as dancers with the hottest artistes at the time; Voicemail, Bounty Killa, and Elephant Man.
Do you wanna experience the true Jamaican Dancehall?
In 2005 when Bogle passed away, there was a halt in Boysie’s dance career, he was devastated, not only because he lost a friend and dance-brother but he also feared his life as 3 Black Roses Members were already targeted and murdered. He considered the best way to recuperate was to spend some time outside of Jamaica, where he would be far away from the violence. He returned to Jamaica about a year later and very slowly immersed himself back into the dancehall.
Now Boysie passionately teaches “old school” dancehall in Jamaica and abroad, offering his students the first hand history and legacy of himself and Bogle. Every class/workshop with Boysie takes students back to those founding days of dancehall; with the original steps, his signature robust energy and excitement, and first hand stories that will give you insight into dancehall’s conception which will give you the foundation and inspiration to take your dancing to the next level.
