He is widely known for his innovative choreography featured on several music awards including American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards and Blockbuster Music Awards.

Darrin believes that working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be lots of fun! Dancing is the answer to loosing weight and getting in shape. He wants to assist people in achieving their goal by showing them that they can “Get in the Groove and into Shape.” He wants to share this information with as many people as he can and be instrumental in getting them to “livet” as opposed to “diet.”
