Dance Signature Move:
Having lived the life of a dancer for some time now, Kevin really wants to make the Top 10 and is excited to see how America views him: “I’ve been teaching, auditioning, trying to book jobs. You know, that’s what most dancers do. Hopefully, you get a big break like this and hopefully it takes you somewhere. I can’t wait to see who my partner is and what happens as the weeks go by.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
From Fox Dance Profile:
Kevin “K’bez” Hunte was born in beautiful Brooklyn, NY. K’bez is a hip hop, dance ’til you drop, kinda guy. I’ve performed with artists such as Lil Mama, and I’ve had the privilege to work with Beyonce. Inspired by Michael Jackson, I hope someday I can touch people around the world and have an impact on their life through dance, the way MJ had an impact on me. 🙂
