Rokafella

Hip-Hop dancer/choreographer Ana “Rokafella” Garcia was born in Spanish Harlem where she grew up with a strong Latin background.  She participated in school recitals and community events.  At the age of 16 she began going to clubs and started to do back up dancing for singers. Her Hip-Hop dance style became her bread and butter when she began street performing with such crews such as The Transformers, The Breeze Team, and the New York City Float Committee.  In ‘94 she ran into Kwikstep who urged her to audition for GhettOriginal- a Hip-Hop dance company.
