Born in France, Prosenjit, who is of Bengali-Indian and French descent discovered the art of hip hop dancing in 1990, at the mere age of 15. Two years later at 17, he stumbled upon a D.C. house club by the name of Trax and fell in love with the energy and flow of house dance. On turning 18, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where he acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance and Choreography. By day, he formally trained in the dance forms of Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap and African at VCU and by night was pursuing dance styles such as Breakdancing, House, Hip Hop, Popping and Locking at underground clubs.
