I have a big white rock rooster that's about 25 weeks old I let them out every morning and he comes up to me stretches his wings out towards the ground and does like an Indian rain dance. Is he trying to show dominance over me ?

Absolutely! He is treating you as he would another chicken. Next step is pecking at the ground and sort of side stepping. If allowed it may then escalate to full out flogging. Walk towards him and force him to give way. Don't kick at him - that will only reinforce his desire to assert dominance. There are many threads on site about correcting the bad behavior of roosters. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Good luck.
