Andre Gary, a Breakdance instructor by day and a Jamskater by nightfall. Born and raised in Austin he says he has the privilege of calling Playland Skate Center his home rink. Currently skating for VNLA Skate Co. & Kounterfit Klothing. His local team however is isk8 entertainment where he skates with long term teammate, and fellow VNLA crew member, Darryl Demps Jr.
Andre had a pretty normal upbringing growing up in a dance oriented family. His father and his uncle were rink floor guards from Saginaw, Michigan & Atlanta, Georgia. While his brother was a hip hop dancer. So it was only a matter of time that he’d fall in to such a sport right?
Well despite a late start to his skating career, he now finds his passion in teaching and giving back to the community by sharing from his past experiences at events around the U.S. What a fellow! Aspire to inspire.
