Interview with Dancer and Actor Clinton Huff
This interview was done a few years back (2012) but is no less helpful to the artist and entrepreneur!
Clinton was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, where he began his
dance training at the tender age of 11, focusing on Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop. Because he loved old school popping he was eager to learn the fundamentals of popping and waving. Clinton spent many summers abroad in France training with the boys technique teacher from the world famous, Paris Opera. As a teenager, he performed in many musicals including, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat, West Side Story and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers.
Clinton has worked in film, television, stage and commercials. His commercial credits include Coke, Target, Cheetos, Progressive Insurance, Budweiser, Visa, Sprint, Hyundai, K-Swiss, Nissan, Volkswagen-Jetta, Nokia, Bugaboo, and Jack in the Box to name a few. You would have also seen him on television and on the big screen in the following: Glee, Two and Half Men, Disaster Movie, Malcolm in the Middle, The Video Game Awards, The Comebacks, Jackass #2, and Eli Stone! Clinton has also performed for prestigious companies like Disney, Honda, Fiat, Bellagio & Aria Casinos in Las Vegas, E-3 and Paul Mitchell.
He has also traveled the world performing close to home in an industrial show for Nike in beautiful Hawaii, as well as touring countries like Germany and Canada with the amazing choreographer Hi Hat.
Clinton has worked with many other notable choreographers such Fred Tallaksen, Michael Rooney, Zach Woodley, and Michael Swandt. He has also worked along side Kim Kardashian, Franky Munez, David Koechner and Neil Patrick Harris. Most recently you would have seen him in his second Jack in the Box commercial ad, where he was directly booked!
Because he has such a strong appreciation for his craft, Clinton believes that sharing his knowledge of dance, with the up and coming dancers of the next generation, is one of the most important things in life. The arts must be embraced and perpetuated.
