Mikey is a Colorado Native who began dancing in high school at Bantaba in Boulder. This is where he first gained appreciation for B-Boying, Rocking, House, and West African Drum and Dance. From there he battled into Affiliated Dance Crew, which inspired him to co-found Street Stylez, a Hip Hop Dance Crew with the goal to cultivate the development of ‘all styles’ and ‘all elements’ of Hip Hop Dance. With this background he continued his dance education at the University of Colorado, where he received a BA in Integrated Physiology and an MFA in Choreography and Performance. Mikey now teaches and shares his cumulative experience in the dance program at Soar Charter School in Denver. He has had the privilege of performing and battling across the US as well as
China and Guinea, West Africa.
