Alexander "The Great" Diaz

MDC's very own Bboy. Alex has been a breakdancer now for 4 years. His passion for it all began when he was about 15, watching the movie "Step Up 2". His favorite bboy named "Luigi" was practically defying gravity with the amazing moves he was executing. He thought to himself "I want to do that." Alex has been blessed with the amazing opportunity of traveling to different States and meeting new people along the way. He has performed in Atlanta, competing in a Barber Battle where his team took 2nd place. He has also competed at various competitions in Philadelphia. His most memorable battle was at the 2012 Field of Screams All-Styles Dance Battle. Not only did he take 3rd place, but that was the start of his journey in teaching youth in the Lancaster area about the Art & History of breakdancing. He currently teaches at Morton's Dance Center where he shares his talent & passion with others. He loves every minute of it and looks forward to the bright future of his students.
