Duncan street dancer Vance Carson Driver will soon be representing North American at K.O.D., the world cup of street dance.

The 20-year-old man started street dancing seven years ago.

He recently made Team Canada by competing in Toronto.

He performs a form of street dance called popping.

“Recently, I was at this event this weekend in Vancouver called Vancouver Street Dance Festival and they performed in Robson Square,” Driver said. “All the public could come in and watch and it was a beautiful thing.”

On Friday, he’ll be heading to China to compete.

He’s the only member of the 15-person team who is originally from Vancouver Island.

“I’m so proud. I don’t know if it’s all sunk in yet,” Driver said. “I think once this thing’s over and I really give myself time to slow down and just think about the last few months, I’ll really feel it a bit more.”

The top prize is $750,000 U.S., to be split among the team members.

Regardless of the result, he says he’ll continue his career in street dance.

The competition will last four days.
