At least thats the case with Ryan Rankine, an African American dancer from New York.
He says people may be surprised to learn that the hardest dance for him during the show was hip-hop.
In his words, Everyone expected me to be really good at hip-hop because Im a black man, when the truth is that Im not really that good at it.
Rankine says that sometimes he dances hip-hop while chillin at the club,but nothing as stylized as on the show.
Instead, Rankine excels at dances like the Cha-Cha and the Cuban Rumba, dispelling the myth that all black people solely enjoy hip-hop.
