Mr. Wiggles is a proud member of three major forces in hip-hop and funk
styles culture; the "Rock Steady Crew", the "Electric Boogaloos", and "Zulu Nation". He started his career as a dancer by battling throughout the tough streets of New York City and eventually throughout the world. He built his reputation and took his skills to major stages all around the world including Europe, South America, Asia, the Middle East, Canada, and on the great stages of Broadway. Wiggles has also been credited with two important movies that helped established hip-hop as a legitimate dance form: Beat Street and Wild Style. Wiggles is still learning his craft today and will remain a true student of the culture until the day he dies. Wiggles is married to his beautiful wife Zoraya Clemente, and has six incredible children named Unico, Alexandra, Talib, Ammar, Atiya, and Zamaria. This is his first season on faculty of the Cultural Traditions Program at The School at Jacob's Pillow.
