Mr. Wiggles is a living legend. Born Steffan Clemente in the “Boogie Down” Bronx, the hip-hop dance pioneer has popped, locked, boogalooed, b-boyed and wiggle-walked his way from Beat Street to Sesame Street, and from the Rock Steady Crew to the Electric Boogaloos. He was a featured dancer and choreographer on tours and videos with Missy Elliot, Usher, and Limp Bizkit. Always outspoken about keeping hip-hop true to its roots, Wiggles was one of the first to call out the dance contest show So You Think You Can Dance when two contestants stole choreography from hip-hop masters Les Twins. He’s currently on a knowledge and training tour, with only one stop in S.F. The class will focus on building a good foundation in popping, hip-hop, and toprocking, while covering cultural concepts like battling, street cred, and maintaining your hustle. Bring your kneepads and come ready to sweat. As Mr. Wiggles says, “Practice hard. It’s no joke.”
