Richard Colon, aka Crazy Legs, is a name who needs little introduction both inside the global breaking community and within Hip Hop culture as a whole. Starting from his humble beginnings at 1661 Garfield Street, in New York City’s The Bronx, he and a handful of friends sat at the helm of what to them was an accident, but would later become not only a global art form, but also culture, dance and way of life for generations to come. Having hustled his way into the now legendary Rock Steady crew at age 12, Crazy Legs helped bring B-Boying out of the streets of New York’s Five Boroughs and introduced it to the world.

He’s also the inventor of the continuous backspin, or the windmill as it’s often referred to, laying the foundation for power moves as we know them today. The dance almost stopped in the mid-80s, leaving many dancers in its wake. But like Afrika Bambaataa before him, Colon simply couldn’t stop and to this day won’t quit. Read on, as this Hip Hop pioneer and B-Boy trailblazer tells the story of how the dance was born in his hometown, along with the characters that helped shape it, break it and bring it back to where we are today.
