My name is Ben Gershen. I am an open-format DJ/MC, educator, and co-founder of Higher Ground Entertainment, a boutique DJ firm based in the Pacific Northwest.

At my core, I am a dancer. I am driven by music, movement, and connection. My professional philosophy reflects how I approach dance- I'm the first one on the floor, the last one to leave, and I'm always prepared to lay it all out. Plus, I'm never afraid to break the ice and get the party started.

I have an ever-growing obsession for harnessing the power of talent, technology, and creativity to help others build communities and celebrate the moments that matter. 

See you on the next dance floor.
