Alien Ness (USA)
Alien Ness has represented some of the most important crews in the evolution of b-boying including Rock Steady Crew and New York City Breakers. He is now president of the Mighty Zulu Kings, an honour bestowed by Afrika Bambaataa.
Ness has remained true to the Bronx-style of b-boying and has committed himself to its preservation. His influence on the global scene over the last few years has been great largely due to the success of his ‘Blueprint’ workshop programme.
He is a regular judge on the international competition circuit and recently released The Art Of Battle, a manual for the b-boy who enters judged battles.
His network of first and second generation b-boys right through to contemporary b-boys is almost unrivalled and makes him one of the most informed authorities on the evolution of the dance.
