Dancing since 1997, Crazy Smooth is one of Canada’s top street dancers, performers, choreographers, instructors, judges, and community leaders. He is founder and creative director of Bboyizm, an award-winning street-dance company that has been instrumental in the preservation and growth of street dance in Canada and internationally. Founded in 2004, Bboyizm is Canada’s premier street-dance company. The company is committed to promote and preserve the foundation, authenticity, and essence of all street dances. Bboyizm believes that authentic self-expression enables an individual – and by extension, a community – to realize its full potential. In addition to performances, the company provides a complete street dance experience that includes outreach and street-dance programs in schools and communities across Canada.
“Crazy Smooth and Bboyizm have effortlessly bridged the distance from the street to the stage. Fusing influences of street dance and hip-hop into a modern dance context, they are creating a new extremely physical world that is theatrical, virtuosic and urban at its very core. Touring with performances, workshops and outreach activities throughout Canada, Bboyizm has built a profile and following from coast to coast to coast.”

“The back flips and high-octane floor and foot work that make B-boying so exhilaratingly watchable are here. But [Crazy Smooth’s] vignettes, set to a range of music, go deeper than tricks, playing with the roots of hip-hop and other street forms.”
