Valentin's dances consist of popping, locking, isolations, and many forms of hip hop. He enjoys providing individuals and groups with dance instructions, to coordinate placement and timing. He effectively directs students in an efficient manner, spreading his own knowledge and wisdom.
For Valentin's philosophy, he tries to portray hip hop more than what is known about the current existence and background of each fundamental. He tries to make others understand their own body and how it can move in so many ways. He likes to encourage people to not be comfortable, and always wants others to accept a challenge.
