SLUG Style: Jordan “JordiRoc” Simmons


Jordan “JordiRoc” Simmons is a freestyle dancer, event organizer and artist from New Jersey now residing in Salt Lake City. Recently, they helped organize the Black Excellence Party, the purpose of which was for “people of different backgrounds to be able to be in a space and either leave with learning something new, having met somebody new, or creating just a different connection with somebody else,” says Simmons.

Special thanks to The HERC, Utah’s Hip Hop Education & Resource Center, where Simmons teaches a hip-hop dance class and who hosted this month’s SLUG Style.

Every month, SLUG Style features a distinct and unique member of the community and asks them why they do what they do. Exploring more than just clothing, SLUG Style is an attempt to feature the people who give Salt Lake City flavor through personality and panache.
