Kai Rivera

In just 2 years, Kai Rivera has gone from a novice to an accomplished dancer with achievements to envy - and he did it all by the age of 10.  Coming in to PMT after others deemed him too young or inexperienced to take on, he went on to win the Apollo Theater Amatuer competition in 2012 under the tutelage of Pavan Thimmaiah.  However, it was not until his performance at Urban Renewal 2013 that he made a name for himself in the NYC dance scene - participating in his first battle while performing an encore of his winning Apollo performance.  Since that time, Kai has continued to impress audiences with memorable performances both on stage and in battles.  He won Break Ups 2 Make Ups Battle 2014 (kids division).  He has placed high in numerous battles including a Semi-finals appearance in Urban Renewal 2014 (All Styles) and a finals appearance in Rep Your Style 2014 (Popping).   He is now a member of the Dynamic Rockers.  He continues to perform with PMT Dance Company as their youngest member - performing at Alvin Ailey Theater, Madison Square Garden and various other venues since 2012.  Always absorbing everything he sees, Kai continues to enter battles and train in dance and gymnastics.  

Kai Rivera is a featured dancer in "Struck" 2014.
