I have been dancing for 35 years and am an early contributor to the history and vocabulary of Hip Hop culture’s Breaking dance from the late 1970′s. I was an original member of the world renowned Rock Steady Crew; the first group of Bboys to receive professional recognition from the media and their peers. I was in the movie “Flashdance” (1983) along with other members of RSC which catapulted the Hip Hop scene into international spotlight. I have received many accolades including five Lifetime Achievement Awards from various organizations. In 2010, I was acknowledged as an “American Master” by the National Endowment for the Arts and received an American Masterpieces in Dance Award. In 2011, I was voted the 2nd Most Influential Dancer of the 20th Century by CNN’s Icon Series, the only B.Boy to receive this honor amongst mostly ballet dancers. Currently I am a Scholar-in-Residence at the Hip Hop Education Center at NYU’s Metropolitan Center for Urban Education and I continue to teach the fundamentals of Breaking worldwide and judge Breaking dance competitions in over 20 countries a year. I take BioAstin because of its many different health benefits, primarily recovery and joint support. Breaking [dancing] requires vigorous & explosive movements which release tons of oxidants though out the body and the wear and tear on the joints create discomfort. BioAstin is a great antioxidant and helps speed my recovery time, repair and decrease the discomfort. BioAstin is also helping my eyes, my skin, my cell repair, mental focus, energy levels, and it’s all around health benefits keep me motivated and committed to taking it.
