Rubberlegz who’s real name is Rauf Yasit is a Los Angeles-based choreographer, director, dancer, and visual artist who was born and raised in Germany.
When he was a child his father, who was a folklore-dance teacher, taught him traditional folk dances.
It didn’t take long for him to discover his passion for Breaking. As a self-taught B-Boy, he began perfecting his skills and growing his passion in 1998. Not long after, he was aptly dubbed “RubberLegz” by his mentor Maxim for his ability to miraculously contort his body into unthinkable shapes and positions. He gained international respect for his unique style. For years, he competed in and judged competitions worldwide. To this day, he continues to perform and teach workshops all around the globe.
By 2007 his repertoire evolved to include performing in contemporary dance productions. It was inevitable, with his endless hours of training, that he would transform his movement skills from a childhood dream into his life’s work and passion.
Rubberlegz was recently awarded 'Best Dancer 2019' by Danza&Danza Magazine for his 'original language' that breaks down barriers between dance genres.
He has worked with William Forsythe, National Opera of Paris, USC, CalArts, LACMA, Malou Airaudo, Nike RT, Burberry, GAP, Arashi, Puma, Sadlers Wells, Flying Steps, Red Bull, Muscle Milk, Moderat, Sony, Sonos, Fiat, WAD MAG, Tumi, HP, Pandora, Pfadfinderei, PACT Zoll Verein, ArtFactory International, CNDC Angers, LMU, Bodytraffic, Jacob Jonas The Company, Renegade Theatre Herne, Andy Hines, Justin Daashur Hopkins, Elliott Sellers, OURO Collective and more.
RubberLegz is an Associate Producer of Films.Dancea the global plattform for dance.
He is a multi-disciplined tour de force and his talents are not limited to dance. While pursuing his dance passion, he received his diploma in 3D-Visualization and Animation. He worked for several years with professional design agencies as a visual artist before moving to Berlin and working as a freelance artist in both design and dance.
In Los Angeles, RubberLegz is busy focusing on his many projects and utilizing his photography, design and dance skills.
