Herman is a native of Northern Virginia. Originally a specialist in breakdance and hip hop choreography, he competed with various crews from the DC metro and central Florida areas until 2010.
In 2008, Herman was given a full ride scholarship to Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida to study classical dance technique. From 2008-2011 he worked simultaneously in contemporary and hip hop styles, touring with Apocalypse Dance Crew regionally and working locally with the Danscompany of Gainesville where he has frequently returned as a guest artist. After receiving his AA degree in dance, Herman was accepted to Florida State in order to continue his dance education. In December of 2016, Herman completed his post graduate studies at FSU with his Masters of Fine Arts degree.
While at FSU, Herman shifted some focus to improving his pedagogy with various teaching opportunities at Santa Fe College, the South Eastern Regional American College Dance Association and the annual American Dance Festival in Durham, North Carolina. As a guest teacher, Herman has taught both hip hop and contemporary styles at many local dance studios across the state of Florida; combining commercial aesthetics with concert dance creative processes. Some of his more notable choreographic projects include work with members of Florida State University dance faculty, the Red Project (NYC), Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre (Miami), and T Lang Dance (ATL). He currently works with Emergence Dance Company in Orlando to continue professional work in the contemporary scene there. Herman holds adjunct dance faculty positions at Santa Fe College and the University of Florida.
